- The Kosrae Conservation & Safety Organization is a nonprofit conservation NGO, started in 1998 by a small group of island residents wanting to ensure the preservation of the Kosrae Island resources for generations to come. KCSO currently has a staff of 8 and an annual estimated budget of $150,000.
As a non-profit conservation NGO, KCSO can only commit itself to achieving certain goals specified in the strategic plan devised by the KCSO Board and staff. The organization truly believes that these goals can be accomplished through partnerships and support from the local communities, implementing partners, and the donor community. With funding and technical support from our partners, KCSO has been able to implement various environmental projects under its three main programs, namely the Marine Conservation Program, the Environmental Education Program and the Terrestrial Conservation Program.
