The factsheets are designed to accompany the self-assessment tool (SAT) in supporting those involved in the integration of marine mammals into MPA management plans. The toolkit itself is flexible and will continue to evolve, as will these factsheets, to incorporate international best practice, new case studies, the latest scientific information, and new factsheets as relevant. The factsheets are continuously updated and should you have any comments/suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us.
