The Mitigation Strategies project is the central focus of this new organization’s work. The project will address the issue of fisheries bycatch and related mortality in seabird and sea turtle species. Through research, demonstration projects, and policy implementation, ACS will develop strategies that will utilize terrestrial conservation interventions (invasive predators and other anthropogenic-driven factors) rather than fisheries closure. The project is a collaborative effort between Switzer Fellows Josh Donlan (1998) and Chris Wilcox (1993) who jointly started the organization last year.
