For the week of 09 July 2018
Join us Monday, July 23, 2018 at 2pm EDT / 11am PDT / 6pm UTC for a webinar on Climate Change Threatens the World’s Marine Protected Areas by John Bruno of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
MPAs and the species they protect are increasingly being impacted by climate change. Although MPAs are widely promoted as a means to mitigate the effects of climate change, the opposite perspective is more in line with the scientific reality: without drastic reductions in carbon emissions, ocean warming, acidification and oxygen depletion will disrupt the composition and functioning of the ecosystems currently protected within the world’s MPAs. The community- and ecosystem-level impacts of climate change threaten to negate decades of progress in conservation and further imperil species and ecosystems that are already in jeopardy.
