Send the letter now to advocate for the creation of marine protected areas that not only put nature and coastal communities first but also respect Indigenous rights and support Indigenous-led visions for marine conservation.
A strong network of Marine Protected Areas will work to reduce habitat degradation, slow the loss of endangered species, and restore depleted fish stocks. It’s clear that protecting 30 percent of our ocean by 2030 will go a long way to ensure Canada preserves the nature and way of life we know and love.
From February 3rd to 9th, the International Marine Protected Areas Conference (IMPAC5) will be happening in Vancouver, as the world’s best scientists, policymakers, academics, and conservationists from around the world will gather to find ways to safeguard the ocean and its wildlife now and for the future. IMPAC5 is a key global moment to advance protection of the ocean.
Restoring and protecting our ocean is crucial to tackling climate disruption, reversing biodiversity loss, and supporting human wellbeing. To achieve it all, the creation of Marine Protected Areas with high-ecological standards is our best bet.
Let the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans know that meeting 30 percent by 2030 is important to you, and NOW, at IMPAC5 is the perfect time for action.
