Preliminary Report of the 7th IMMA Workshop

Following our virtual February’s workshop for the identification of IMMA in the Black Sea, Turkish Straits System, and Caspian Sea, The Joint IUCN WCPA-SSC Marine Mammal Protected Areas Task Force (IUCN SSC-WCPA MMPATF, or The Task Force) is pleased to inform you that the Preliminary Report is now available.

The report can be dwonloaded at the link.  

After the candidate IMMAs list and justification materials on them have been aproved by independent reviewers, the new areas will be placed on the e-Atlas of The Task Force website with background PDFs for each IMMA. Once that is in place, a final report will be issued with the final list of IMMAs and AoI for each region.
