This webinar originally aired on 1 December 2016.
The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) has been working to establish marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean, which would contribute to its objective – the conservation of Antarctic marine living resources. Two proposals have been under consideration since 2012, MPAs in the Ross Sea Region and East Antarctica. An overview and the latest updates on CCAMLR’s MPA efforts will be provided during the webinar. See CCAMLR's webpage for background on CCAMLR MPAs: https://www.ccamlr.org/en/science/marine-protected-areas-mpas.
This webinar was presented by Mi Ae Kim of NOAA, and it was co-sponsored by the NOAA National MPA Center, MPA News, and the EBM Tools Network.
