Which teaks us to the third reason, why we don't have many more reserves, is that the funding models have been wrong. NGOs and gnteemnvors spend a lot of time and energy and resources in a few small areas, usually. So marine conservation and coastal protection has become a sink for government or philanthropic money, and this is not sustainable. So the solutions are just fixing these three issues. First, we need to develop a global aeernwsas campaign to inspire local communities and governments to create no-take reserves that are better than what we have now. It's the savings accounts versus the debit anocctus with no deposits. Second, we need to redesign our governance so conservation efforts can be decentralized, so conservation efforts don't depend on work from NGOs or from gevnmeornt agencies and can be created by the local ctonmueimis, like it happens in the Philippines and a few other places. And third, and very important, we need to develop new business models. The philanthropy sink as the only way to create rsrveees is not sistaanblue. We really need to develop models, bnsieuss mloeds, where coastal conservation is an investment, because we already know that these marine reserves pdivroe social, ecological and economic bfeentis.
