Marine Protected Areas Day 2022

Marine Protected Areas Day 2022Marine Protected Areas Day celebrates the value of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and how they benefit people and marine biodiversity.

It is a day to share stories and information about why marine conservation is crucial, how it can be done and how to continue to build support for MPAs.

This year, marine scientists are joining youth groups onshore to explore South Africa’s MPAs. There is an MPA Day Essay and Art Competition for children run by the Youth4MPAs collective. The popular MPA Day Photo Competition is back with new categories for amateur and professional photographers with even bigger prizes. The MPA Alliance is also hosting a special webinar with five leading South African marine scientists to share the latest research on MPAs. This year will also see the launch of the Citizen Science initiative.
