IUCN Joint SSC/WCPA Task Force on Marine Mammal Protected Areas (MMPATF)

The MMPATF has been created by the International Committee on Marine Mammal Protected Areas (ICMMPA), the WCPA Marine Vice Chair, and the Chair of SSC to help support a stronger global profile and to provide a stronger voice for the MMPA constituency within IUCN. A main objective for the MMPATF is to facilitate mechanisms to encourage collaboration, sharing information and experience, accessing and disseminating knowledge and tools for establishing, monitoring, and managing MMP As and promoting effective spatial solutions and best practices for marine mammal conservation within MMPAs.
