3rd International Conference on Marine Mammal Protected AreasConference
(Conference: 9-11 November 2014) The 3rd International Conference on Marine Mammal Protected Areas will be held on 9 to 11 November 2014 at the Stamford Grande Adelaide Australia and is a parallel event of the IUCN World Parks Congress (WPC), held over three days right before the WPC begins.
The theme of the 3rd International Conference on Marine Mammal Protected Areas (ICMMPA 3), “Important Marine Mammal Areas – A Sense of Place, A Question of Size” will give attention to developing and refining criteria for the identification of important marine mammal areas and to addressing the challenges and strategies of managing very large and very small marine mammal protected areas. Like the first two conferences ICMMPA 3 will highlight new developments in science and management, offer training and capacity-building sessions, and provide a forum for sharing information on approaches to marine mammal management and conservation including knowledge products developed by the newly formed IUCN MMPA Task Force.
This conference is hosted by the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities; Government of South Australia, Department of Water and Natural Resources; Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC).
