The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations.
MPA Day helps us collectively appreciate the value of MPAs and how they benefit both us and the incredible marine biodiversity they are designed to protect.
It’s a day to share stories and information about why and how we need to conserve our oceans and keep building support for MPAs. We hope that MPA Day will help people worldwide recognise the important role of MPAs in preserving our oceans for both people and nature.
The inaugural Marine Protected Areas (MPA) Day, was held on 1 August 2021 in South Africa. The day was a major success with the national event now set to go global in 2022. Everyone is welcome to celebrate these ‘game reserves of the sea’ with a number of exciting activities planned at home and abroad.
