Marine Biodiversity Networking Friday with ProtectedSeas
On January 13th, 2023, 1-2 PM UTC, we will have the Marine Biodiversity Networking Friday with ProtectedSeas. Virgil Zetterlind, Director, and Deirdre Brannigan, Communications and Community Engagement Liaison will present Protected Sea’s work on using regulatory data to inform marine spatial planning efforts.

Being able to access rules and regulations in marine protected areas (MPAs) is critical to understanding which MPAs or OECM (other effective conservation measures) have restrictions in place to meet conservation goals. The ProtectedSeas Navigator mapping project is a one-stop resource for policymakers to find out where MPAs are located as well as discover the existing regulations and evaluate their various levels of protection. This regulations-based tool can be used to inform protection analyses and aid in forecasting other areas that need protection. Currently ProtectedSeas has data for over 24,000 MPAs in more than 200 countries –the only place this comprehensive repository of information and data exists. ProtectedSeas is in a formal public-private partnership with the US NOAA MPA Center. This session will be of special interest to MPA managers, resource protection staff, policy makers, scientists, politicians, educators, and the conservation community who are interested in assessing ocean conservation regulations and protection metrics.
