Elliot Norse Interviewed by New York Times
January 18, 2007

Pew Fellow and President of the Marine Biology Conservation Institute, Elliott Norse, was interviewed for a recent story in the New York Times about the struggle to preserve the archipelago that is now officially designated as the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Marine National Monument. Norse provided insight about President Bush’s feelings on the monument by offering tidbits of a conservation he had with the President before and after a private White House viewing of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s documentary “Voyage to Kure”. Norse said that President Bush made it clear he wanted all fishing to end as soon as possible, although he did not offer an explanation of how he would achieve that. Norse commented that he thought the president had hoped to “do something spectacular for the environment that didn’t conflict with existing policies.”
