When I started MPA News back in 1999, the idea behind it was pretty simple: to help the planners and managers of marine protected areas around the world share their knowledge and experience with each other. A few years later the concept was the same for MPA News’ sister newsletter Marine Ecosystems and Management, which serves professionals in the fields of ecosystem-based management and marine spatial planning.
