For the week of 4 September 2017
Letter from the Editor
Join us Thursday, September 14 at 1pm US EDT / 10am US PDT / 5pm UTC for a webinar on Satellite Tracking Sharks and Fishing Vessels to Assess a Remote MPA, presented by Tim White of Stanford University.
Large marine protected areas (MPAs) have recently been established throughout the world at an unprecedented pace, yet the value of these reserves for mobile species conservation remains uncertain. This webinar will describe how recent advances in satellite technology and big data analytics have improved our ability to observe and understand the benefits of large MPAs. As a primary case study, the webinar will outline recent efforts to track fishing vessels and reef sharks within the Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, a U.S.-administered protected area in the central Pacific Ocean.
