The First Post!!!

First posts are always awkward.

So, where to begin?

This is going to be the official "unofficial" blog of the Marianas Resource Conservation & Development Council for the next year or so. Although the council works on a number of projects throughout the year, the focus of this blog is going to be coral reefs and the RC&D Council's coral reef public awareness and involvement initiatives in Saipan.

The RC&D Council recently recieved a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to raise public awareness of coral reefs in Saipan. I don't want to get too far into the details in this first post, but over the course of a year, this blog will chronicle the implementation of the activities and goals set forth in the grant.

That should be enough to get this thing started. It will take a lot of hard work to make this initiative a success, but I think we are going to be very successful. I'm looking forward to it!

The program will be starting in a few days. Please bookmark this page and come back and visit us often to see how the program progresses!
