NEW MPA-RELATED CONTENT ON OpenChannels THIS MONTH…

The OpenChannels website (OpenChannels.org) is what happened when we wondered, “What if we took the best features of the Web for sharing knowledge and made them available to the audiences for MPA News and Marine Ecosystems and Management…?”

OpenChannels helps you share and gain knowledge more easily on best practices in ocean planning and management.  With blogs by leading experts, live chats, private discussion groups, a searchable and curated literature library, videos, webinars, and more tools to come, OpenChannels aims to be your consistent source for news, guidance, and community discussion.

New MPA-related content on OpenChannels this month includes:

-  Blog: Pushing forward the Pelagos Sanctuary and the conservation of marine mammals in the Mediterranean Sea - By Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara

-  Blog: Qualifying just any spatial zoning as an ‘MPA’ only diminishes the tool - By Joachim Claudet

-  Blog: Tighter Law Enforcement in Pacific Marine Monuments - By Lance Morgan

-  Book excerpt: The Ocean of Life: Fate of Man and the Sea - By Callum Roberts

-  Upcoming webinars on MPA monitoring and education (go to http://openchannels.org/webinars/upcoming )
