For the weeks of 21 & 28 November 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 1pm US EST / 10am US PST / 6pm UTC for a webinar on Demonstrating Relevance: Applying Lessons on Management Effectiveness at Grays Reef National Marine Sanctuary, presented by Sarah Fangman of NOAA.
While the sanctuary protects an abundance of marine life, very few people know about it, and even fewer visit. With few users and very little awareness the sanctuary even exists, sanctuary staff began an evaluation process to examine the MPA's relevance and how to move the site forward into the future. This webinar will describe how the site designed and completed an analysis of the sanctuary's education, outreach and resource protection programs and how staff are working to bring more awareness to a small, remote marine protected area and ensure management effectiveness.

-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
