Marine Managed Areas - MPA Mapping
To maintain long-term ocean health, we need marine managed areas to ensure that special places and life forms are available for future generations. This interactive mapping application provides detailed information on over 7,000 managed saltwater and coastal areas worldwide.
Managed areas in the High Seas help maintain long-term ocean health by protecting important habitats and the marine organisms that depend on them. This interactive map provides detailed information on different types protected areas beyond national jurisdiction, including treaty areas, regulated management and protected areas, and unregulated areas in need of protection.
