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, practitioners and stakeholders who are working with marine mammals and MPAs. 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 whilst strengthening and building capacities, all of which aid in improved management and conservation actions for marine mammals through local, national and transboundary MPAs.
The Community of Practice brings together marine users from around the globe with the common goal of ensuring that marine mammals are effectively protected within marine policy frameworks. Members can 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.
