MMMPA (Monitorning Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas)

About this project

MMMPA (Monitorning Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas)
MMMPA aims to train the next generation of MPA scientists and managers, gearing them with a flexible set of skills essential within a wide range of professional environments, including public administration, local authorities, industry and academia. They will focus on the most important aspects that need adequate conservation. In particular, researchers will gain the experience to: identify protected species; monitor their distribution and health state; follow adequate experimental designs; develop fishery management at the local level; develop management guidelines; and engage with stakeholders and the society at large. These experiences will stem from a highly interdisciplinary network, including experts in taxonomy, ecology, biology conservation, bio-cartography, and socio-economy. Furthermore, they will be trained in a range of soft skills including science communication/outreach, as it is essential at the delicate interface between science, the management of natural assets and the public at large.
