Community of Practice
Welcome to the Community of Practice of the Marine Mammals Management Toolkit.
The Community of Practice has been designed to create and support a network of MPA managers who are actively managing, are aware of, or wishing to ensure marine mammals are effectively managed through MPA management frameworks and policies. By building upon and supporting the resources and tools provided by the factsheets, self-assessment tool, and good practices, the Community of Practice promotes important collaboration and knowledge exchange opportunities between its members, strengthens and builds members’ capacities all which contribute to the better management and conservation of marine marine mammals through local, national and transboundary MPAs.
The Community of Practice brings together MPA practitioners from around the globe with the common goal of ensuring that marine mammals are effectively managed within marine policy frameworks. Members are able to identify and network with fellow MPA and marine mammal experts, access the Toolkit’s technical resources and obtain support and guidance from mentors, ultimately sustaining the growth of the Community of Practice.
