Pelayo Salinas de León is a marine ecologist with a keen interest in marine protected areas, shark ecology, and science communication. Currently he is a Pristine Seas conservation scientist and a senior marine ecologist with the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galápagos Islands. Currently, many countries are working to reach 10% protection of their marine waters by Through our own third party research, we adjust the official MPA numbers reported by the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) to better track highly protected and fully implemented marine protected areas.

Abstract. Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) play important roles in biodiversity conservation, the sustainability of ecosystem services, ecosystem resilience in the face of global and ocean scale influences and as both a safeguard against management failure and uncertainty, and as control regions to benchmark human impacts in unprotected areas.

Marine protected areas (MPA) are protected areas of seas, oceans, estuaries or in the US, the Great Lakes. These marine areas can come in many forms ranging from wildlife refuges to research facilities.

MPAs restrict human activity for a conservation purpose, typically to protect natural or cultural resources. Such marine resources are protected by local, state, territorial, native, regional. 4 Marine protected areas in Europe's seas Acknowledgements Acknowledgements EEA lead author Johnny Reker.

European countries have been extending marine protected areas across Europe’s seas. More effective management of these marine protected areas. NOAA's Marine Protected Areas Inventory (MPA Inventory) describes all MPAs in US waters, where they are and what they do. This comprehensive geospatial database combines publicly available data with information from state and federal MPA programs.

It can be used to view MPAs, explore status and trends of MPAs, create customized maps and analytical products, or add MPAs to data portals, online. Chances are you've visited a marine protected area and maybe didn't even know it. If you've gone fishing in central California, diving in the Florida Keys, camping in Acadia, swimming in Cape Cod, snorkeling in the Virgin Islands, birding in a Gulf Coast wetland, hiking along the Olympic Coast, or boating in Thunder Bay, you've probably been one of thousands of visitors to a marine protected area.

"This new collection edited by Joachim Claudet is now the best available book on the science around marine protected areas (MPAs). Its well-published authors come from 11 countries, so the book is a good reflection of the state of the art with little geographic bias.4/4(1).

Blue Parks are outstanding marine protected areas that safeguard ocean wildlife. Blue Park Awards incentivize effective science-based marine conservation, and the growing network of Blue Parks brings us closer to our goal of strong protection for 30% of the ecosystems in each marine biogeographic region of the world’s ocean by Jones' book is rich in foreign examples which those who care about marine protection's future in the UK would do well to ponder." - Horatio Morpurgo, campaigner and author on marine conservation issues in SW England, in a Special Report of the Ecologist.
