CECTalks Webcast: Tackling Climate Change Impacts in North America’s Marine Protected Areas


January 28, 2013


What an engaging hour! Thanks to all who joined us today for #CECTalks: Marine Protected Areas in a Changing Climate. 

A recorded version of the webcast will be available soon at www.cec.org/cectalks, so stay tuned!

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation invites all who care about the future health of our oceans to join us for a one-hour interactive webcast hosted by Washington Post national environment reporter Juliet Eilperin and featured guest Maria Brown, superintendent of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.

The effects of climate change like rising water temperatures and decreasing ocean pH levels are resulting in decreased food distribution and availability for fish and marine mammals. Together, North America’s marine protected areas form critical ecological linkages and pathways that can be managed to help protect marine species from these deleterious effects.

This webcast discussion is a chance to find out how marine protected areas are being managed to deal with a changing climate, including by using tools like the CEC’s soon-to-be-published “how-to” Guide for Planners and Managers to Design Resilient Marine Protected Area Networks in a Changing Climate.
