The Arnavon Community Marine Park in Isabel province has won a Blue Park award from the Marine Conservation Institute and its international science council. The award was announced last week at the 2019 Our Ocean Conference in Oslo, Norway. The Arnavons is now one of 16 Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that hold the prestigious Blue Park Award, indicating that they meet the highest science-based standards for marine life protection and management. Awards are granted after months of rigorous review by Marine Conservation Institute and an independent science council.
