After more than 3 years, 70+ interviews, and 30 case studies which span 23 countries and 6 continents, the Conservation of Tropical Coral Reefs, has finally been slated for publication by Palgrave Macmillan.  The book, totaling 700+ pages, has been written by our very own Brian McFarland.  Brian is the Senior Vice President at Carbonfund.org and he recently celebrated 13 years at Carbonfund.org.

The book, which follows Brian’s two previous books on the conservation of tropical rainforests, critically engages with how the conservation of tropical coral reefs is financed.  From the Great Barrier Reef, to the Coral Triangle, to the Mesoamerican Reef, tropical coral reef degradation and loss are serious global environmental issues, contributing to loss revenue and food insecurity for coastal communities, and species extinction.  Yet, many leading companies, individuals, and governments are making a positive impact on tropical coral reef conservation through the use of conservation finance.
