  • Salish Sea Science Roundtable

    Date: June 4, 2024
    Time: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
    Salish Sea Science Roundtable: Enhancing climate change planning and adaptive management in marine protected areas

    Marine Protected Areas are being deployed globally to protect the Earth’s biodiversity in rapidly changing oceans. Nesting climate change considerations within adaptive Marine Protected Area management and monitoring is becoming a more common approach, and climate change is increasingly addressed in Marine Protected Area planning but implementation gaps remain. Kaia Bryce and Karen Hunter will share highlights from their new research evaluating how robustly climate change is incorporated into Marine Protected Area monitoring plans. The adaptive management cycle is a core climate adaptation strategy, but incomplete in many of these cases. Join us to explore their findings, including the role of socio-ecological objectives and local partnerships as avenues to continue to improve Marine Protected Area outcomes in a changing world.
