Pacific Coast Whale Watching in and around MPAs

Posted on Nov 4, 2016 in Cetacean Ecosystems and Habitats

Cet Law teamed up with consultants Stephanie Stefanski and Jared Towers to win a bid to perform a study on Pacific Coast Whale-Watching in and around Marine Protected Areas.

The study is part of a broader project run by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) entitled “Strengthening Marine Protected Areas: Strengthening Management Effectiveness and Supporting Coastal Community Resilience.”  The CEC was set up under NAFTA and facilitates work between US, Canada and Mexico to protect their shared environments. The study will be moving forward at a rapid pace with findings to be presented at workshop in late February bringing in a wide stakeholder community for discussion.
