PS team member awarded new grant for research on gender and fisheries

Project Seahorse is pleased to announce that team member and Ph.D student Danika Kleiber has been awarded a valuable and prestigious Kathryn Fuller Doctoral Fellowship from WWF USA.

These highly competitive grants are intended to advance conservation through science. They support research expenses for Ph.D students working on issues of exceptional importance and relevance to conservation efforts in a marine region prioritized by the WWF-US priority place.

Danika's US $20,000 fellowship will support her important and innovative work on the role and impact of women in small-scale fisheries and marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Central Philippines.

Throughout the world women and men participate in small-scale fisheries but women's fishing efforts are often overlooked. Understanding women's fisheries is essential for making effective and sustained marine conservation and fisheries management plans in the Central Philippines and globally.
