The Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea and Areas of Influence is an international network of more than 20 civil society organizations working on marine conservation in the southern cone (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and surrounding international waters).
Since their foundation in 2004, the Forum worked with a regional perspective, building consensus, relying on scientific information, integrating disciplines and promoting a plurality of views and opinions.

Objectives

• Understand marine ecosystems.
• Determine their conservation status.
• Support the creation and integrated management of marine protected areas.
• Encourage the implementation of effective controls and precautionary policies, as well as transparent and responsible management.
• Foster educational initiatives and dissemination of information as to the importance and value of oceans.

Some lines of work:

• Strengthening of Marine Protected Areas
• State of the seismic situation in the sea
• Impacts and solutions of marine plastic litter from fishing
