MPA Guide

Momentum to protect the global ocean and to use Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as a conservation tool is greater than it has ever been. But realizing the potential will require a common, shared language to understand, track and celebrate achievements and provide clarity about our collective, science-based goals.

The MPA Guide refines existing language and captures a shared vision to describe MPAs and the conservation outcomes they provide. It is the work of hundreds of stakeholders from around the world. It is a timely and important tool to help drive more and better ocean protection and reflects a collective ambition to find unity in language and consistency in approach.
