NOAA Announces PR Coral Reef Fellowship

NOAA is seeking applicants for a newly created PR Coral Reef Management Fellowship.

The goal of this fellowship assignment is to support the DNER on several tasks pertaining to the PR Coral Reef Program and natural reserves management plans.

The local community of Rincon, with support from the Surfrider Foundation, has been very involved in the process to establish the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve and to develop a Management Plan for the site. As a representative of DNER, the fellow will work with the community to begin implementation of this plan with an emphasis on an outreach and education program with community involvement in related activities.

The fellowship starts January 2010 and will end January 2012.

Applications are due by July 31, 2009.
