WDC is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Lui Bell, Marine Species Advisor with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme. 

Lui was always an incredibly strong advocate for the Pacific Islands Region marine environment – and countless positive and inspiring conservation victories and gains are due to his dedication.

Our prayers and thoughts go to his family and friends at this very difficult time.
