Satellites for MPAs

According to recent data, only about 4% of the world’s oceans appear to be relatively unaffected by human activities

 

The Iroise Marine Natural Park

In this video you will discover the natural Iroise Marine Park, a very good example of a marine protected area. Created in September 28, 2007 in Brittany (France), it is the first French marine park. 

 

Magazine for Day 3

Today's magazines focusses onf "Management and Assessment Tools in the Service of MPAs". Through interviews and images of workshops, this magazine provides a quick summary of the day !

 

Marine protected areas are living laboratories for scientists to learn about our oceans, so we can all make better decisions about their—and our—future.

 

Connecting us to nature

Marine protected areas offer beautiful and unique places to explore and enjoy the natural world.

This is one of nine videos on coral bleaching by the IUCN Climate Change and Coral Reefs working group (2009). One key to coral reef resilience is how herbores prevent a ‘phase shift’ from coral- to macro-algal reefs.

This is one of nine videos on coral bleaching by the IUCN Climate Change and Coral Reefs working group (2009). Intense sunlight interacts with high temperatures to exacerbate bleaching events, so reducing light levels through shading and screening can help them withstand thermal stress.

This is one of nine videos on coral bleaching by the IUCN Climate Change and Coral Reefs working group (2009). Water movement helps corals in many ways, but ‘freshening’ the environment, bringing in cooler water and more.

Victoria’s Marine National Parks and sanctuaries are unique. Many of the marine plants and animals are found nowhere else. This is a result of the long south- facing coastline, a history of geological isolation and limited influence by major ocean currents.

The Under the Lens project is collaboration between Parks Victoria and Museum Victoria to collect high quality imagery and video of Victoria’s marine national parks and sanctuaries.  In 2008 an initial pilot project commenced and in 2010 the partnership was formalized.

The development of the “Os Miñarzos” MPA started in October 2003 and its designation as an MPA took place in April 2007. This MPA
has an extension of 1300 ha, with two No-Take Zones (NTZ) of 37 ha and 12 ha respectively,
