Not in my islands or NIMI


So if your home is important enough, this article is all about finding a way to protect it. It seems the island nation of Palau wanted to protect their home and so first they banned all commercial fishing in their waters, creating a marine sanctuary, but then the next question was what now?

They decided to start a crowdfunding campaign, to obtain the resources necessary for protecting their sanctuary. You can read all about it in the article “This is What Happens When You Crowdfund an Awesome Marine Park”  by over at Grist.

There is also an article entitled “Island Nation Sets Up World’s First Crowdfunded Marine Protected Area”  By David Shiffman over at Scientific American.  So how cool is that?!
