In 2002, a grant was awarded to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for the development of a Maryland coastal bays sensitive areas management plan. This project will provide preferred alternatives for balancing sensitive aquatic resources with water-based activities in Maryland's coastal bays. In addition it will increase public awareness of the sensitive resources in the coastal bays and promote the involvement of stakeholders in the sensitive area initiative. Also in 2002, a grant was awarded to the Palau Conservation Society to contribute to the long-term goal of sustainable management of Palau's Rock Island region by providing essential scientific information required to develop the long-term management plan for the area.
