International Marine Protected Areas Congress - IMPAC4
Marine Protected Areas are extremely dynamic and energetic environments where humans meet the ocean. Fishing, aquaculture, tourism, recreation, navigation, sailing and scientific research are just a few of the activities that take place in MPAs. Given the complex nature of MPAs, participants from multidisciplinary backgrounds will reconvene in La Serena, Chile for IMPAC4, an international conference with a program that covers a wide array of topics, including management tools, conservation biology, ecology, fisheries, climate change, monitoring, enforcement, community development, communications, education, business administration, and much more!
During four full days, plus an initial welcome evening, recent activities and trends in MPA management and science will be presented and discussed. A more detailed program will be available soon once principal topics and streams have been defined.
