“May we be a sea of people for the Sea”
The ocean connects us, and in 2020 -despite new barriers and challenges-, we confirmed it:
We generated intersectoral dialogue processes, enriched by a regional approach, to address the challenges of the Marine Protected Areas (MPA) systems of Argentina and Chile through a cycle of Webinars.
We published two new reports on the Evaluation of the State of Conservation of Species for the Patagonian Sea according to IUCN Red List criteria –Bony Fishes and Chondrichthyans– prepared together with specialists from the region.
We supported the 2nd Conference on Oceans in Uruguay, in which experts from the region stressed the importance of unifying efforts for the marine protection of the Southern Cone.
Our network continued to grow and strengthen: we welcomed new members of the network, we renewed the authorities of our Steering Group, and we held our annual plenary meeting 100% virtual, with the same commitment as always.
In 2021, we will continue to strengthen cooperation and networking at a regional scale for the conservation of the sea.
