Seacology

The majority of the Stanford Spring 2018 Class found their $20,000 grant to Seacology to be a good decision with a good outcome because the project of constructing Swiflet huts and revising Tabin Wildlife Reserve management plans were carried out. However, 15% of students found the grant to be a mistake due to the lack of clarity the organization provided regarding the long-term efficacy and next steps for the project. Seacology is an environmental organization that provides support to island communities by funding a key community need (school building, water system, etc) in exchange for the village agreeing to create or support a forest or marine reserve.
