CONSERVATION CHALLENGES OF THE PATAGONIAN SEA

From the Southern Cone we look at the planning and implementation opportunities of marine protected area.

Marine Protected Areas of the Southern Cone

Webinars seek to contribute to the dialogue on marine protected areas (MPAs) under the challenge of generating representative systems of environmental heterogeneity capable of sustaining themselves in the face of climate change. The participants are referents of the institutions committed to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity, both governmental and academic and civil society.

Access here to the series of documents on MPAs from Argentina and Chile that inspired these meeting:

Webinar 1 – Best MPAs in the region

11h (-3GMT)

Webinar 2 – Towards an effective conservation network

September 28
11h (-3GMT)

The webinars are free of charge and will be on the Zoom platform to take care of the health of the participants and attendees.
