Science into Practice
A few highlights of the ways
we are connecting with the wider world
to listen, learn, and share how
our science can be relevant and useful.

The MPA Guide
What does the "protected" in protected area mean? How much of the ocean is effectively protected? Read more about our long-term, international collaboration to bring more clarity and transparency to how we plan, track, report, and actively manage MPAs worldwide.
We partner with Oregon Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, local communities and captains, and multiple labs at OSU to better understand how Oregon's MPAs are being used by fishes and people.
The Science of Marine Reserves
Since 2002, we have been working in an international collaboration to catalyze, synthesize, and communicate scientific data about marine protected areas to help find solutions to the challenges facing our oceans.
Tales from the Sea
Marine scientists are witnessing first-hand how the ocean is changing. We have been working to compile their stories so others can share their experiences and calls to action.
