A local NGO, Baileo, is helping to establish marine protected areas (MPAs) off the coast of Haruku, Nusalaut, and Saparua Islands, all small islands in Maluku Province. Baileo is leading communities in data collection, site delineation, and creation of MPA management committees. A key element of the work is the recognition and use of traditional law and practice to establish the MPAs.

Strategic Direction: 4 Strengthen community-based action to protect marine species and sites
