Project Summary:
A cornerstone of effective MPA management is how boundaries protect globally significant populations of marine higher predators (MHP; seals, seabirds, cetaceans). DPLUS0071 identified limited MHP tracking data impeded fine-scaling FI Marine Managed Areas (MMAs). This project will fill data gaps for globally significant MHP, enable fine-scaling of FI MMAs, and deliver risk assessment frameworks to facilitate informed decision making. This will be achieved through a cost effective, locally driven MHP tracking program and workshops, in partnership with FIG and JNCC.
