MahoMahonia Na Dari
Research and Conservation Centre
Kimbe Bay, West New Britain, Papua New Guinea
Mahonia works with local communities to achieve conservation and sustainable resource management. The first Locally Managed Marine Areas in Papua New Guinea were achieved by Mahonia working with community owners.
In the long term, Mahonia Na Dari hopes to become a leading advocate for conservation, with strengths in marine education and outreach, community-based conservation, research and community development projects. Beginning in Kimbe Bay, Mahonia Na Dari aims to build a grassroots constituency for conservation, increasing environmental awareness and inspiring local action to protect marine and forest habitats.
