With the recent rise in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), we wanted to share a great new resource: MPAtlas.
On MPAtlas, you can see either a map or a list of all 6,594 MPAs. You can change the map to show you eco-regions, fishery management regions, Exclusive Economic Zones, and designated or candidate MPAs. You can also search by region or country.
On MPApedia, you can find answers to all the questions you have about Marine Protected Areas, from success stories to global targets.
To learn more about MPAs, check out some of these links:
