Objectives

Oceans and marine life define the Atlantic Area. The protection of key areas for biodiversity at sea is not as widespread as on land. Each country is at a different stage in the process of designating marine protected areas (MPAs), and so there are opportunities to learn from other’s experiences.
The partners will monitor and track seabirds throughout the Area and, by combining this data with oceanographic information, produce comprehensive maps to inform the designation of MPAs. The partners will communicate with a range of stakeholders in the marine environment, to minimise the impact of man’s activities on important areas for marine biodiversity. This will be done through an interactive GIS website, conferences, workshops and publications. The project will also develop recommendations on the future management of MPAs.



MAIN GOALS
  • To establish a transnational evidence base to inform decisions on the Atlantic marine environment.
  • To make specific recommendations on designating and managing Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).
  • To communicate effectively with decision makers, scientists, NGOs, marine professionals and the public about the importance of the Atlantic marine environment and role they can play in protecting it.
  • To map marine sites that are critical to the survival of threatened/important marine seabird species.
  • To assess the impact of human activity (including fisheries & renewable energy offshore) on important sites.
  • To produce recommendations for managing important sites for the benefit of threatened/important marine seabird species.
  • To provide current or future stakeholders who are engaged with managing important marine sites, with information on how best to operate for the benefit of seabird species.
  • To recommend sites for MPA designation.
  • To manage the human impact on the marine environment.
  • To communicate project wide results and best practice with the general public, key stakeholders and decision makers.
  • To set up tools (such as website, leaflets, reports) to enable this communication with the target audiences.
  • To increase the experience and knowledge of using different communication methods within the project partnership.
  • To design and implement website.
  • To promote the project through printed materials.
  • To communicate with specialist groups
