What's New: PEPP Talk

PEPP: The Ocean Unites Us

Richard Pruett

A warm kaselehlie, and welcome to Partnership for the Environmental Protection of the Pacific, Inc., or PePP, a Micronesian corporation.  Thank you for your interest in protecting the Pacific Ocean and promoting the welfare of Pacific Islanders.  


PePP seeks to assist the people of the Pacific in better managing their environmental resources and in more robustly defending their interests in creative new and important ways. PePP's first projects are ambitious.  Read more about our three Signature Projects under the "Our Focus" Tab, but, in brief, they're designed to bring full energy independence, broader health care service, and food security to Pacific Islanders. 


PePP's Board of Directors (see Tab titled "Our Team") is an all-star cast of experienced Pacific hands with diverse talents and backgrounds. PePP plans to broaden the Board by incrementally adding reputable community leaders and qualified individuals nominated by our major funding partners.  All of our leadership is serving on a pro bono basis, which translates into low administrative overhead.  Our focus is on effectiveness, sustainability, and value, in service to the people of the Pacific. We're united by our love of the Pacific and our commitment to helping Pacific Islanders surmount the many serious environmental challenges they face.


I'm pleased to return to the leadership of PePP after a leave of absence to fulfill short-term diplomatic assignments on behalf of the U.S. Department of State and lead the first U.S. dive expedition to Autonomous Bougainville to explore a possible air wreck site associated with the mysterious 1937 disappearance of famed U.S. aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart.


We remain keen to identify additional talent for our Board. We invite any interested party to contact us. 


Wishing you PePP in abundance.
