5th ICMMPA

The 5th International Conference on Marine Mammal Protected Areas will evaluate the progress made over the last decade to meet ICMMPA’s long-standing goal of bringing the MMPA community closer together.

A primary goal of this conference, held for the first time in the Mediterranean, is to focus on the challenges ahead to examine concrete and practical steps towards achieving effective place-based protection and management for marine mammals and to identify a path forward that will lead ICMMPA into its second decade.

Hosting the Conference in Greece will allow representatives from Europe and the Mediterranean region to participate, helping to build local and regional capacity.
