The Government of Canada recently made some ambitious goals to protect 10% of their coasts by 2020. I speak to Dr. Rodolphe Devillers to discuss the challenges the Canadian Government and other governments face when establishing Marine Protected Areas.
Some of the challenges we discuss:
1) Will protected areas only be designated where human activity is absent to implement them faster?
2) Should the MPAs designated be connected ecologically?
Links to Resources mentioned in the Episode:
1) Government of Canada announcement of Area of Interest
2) Another Government of Canada Press Release
3) CPAWS press release on the Area of Interest
