For the week 30 January 2017
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 1pm US EST / 10am US PST / 6pm UTC for a webinar on Protecting Our Marine Treasures: Sustainable Finance Options for US Marine Protected Areas, presented by Brian Baird of The Bay Institute and Aquarium of the Bay, and Martha Honey of the Center for Responsible Travel.
MPAs require sustainable long-term funding for designation and management – including for education, outreach, monitoring, research, policy development, and enforcement. Recommendations from a new report produced by the US Marine Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee will be discussed, along with a wide-range of approaches for obtaining external funding, important guidelines for success, and potential sources of external financing.

Thank you for being a part of the OpenChannels Community,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
