 Dear coral scientists and managers,

I am a reef fish ecologist that coordinates a network of marine protected
area practitioners and had a vibrant capacity building program for
strengthening marine managed areas. We expect them to help restore coastal
ecosystems. We also assist young fishers to transit to  alternative
livelihoods to reduce fishing  pressure  and become allies of those MMAs.

Thise young people  have decades ahead, so I want  (and prefer)  to convey
messages to stimulate their creativity rather than the depressive side of
their brain. It also keeps me young.

Do you have any advice for me?
