WildAid invites you to our first-ever global marine protected area (MPA) enforcement conference. Join fellow marine experts in the city by the bay: San Francisco, California, and learn about the most innovative strategies being used in MPAs around the world.

Presenters will explore common obstacles to MPA management, as well as potential solutions to the following challenges: weak legal frameworks, poor surveillance capacity, insufficient budgets, inadequate training programs, lack of community buy-in, and limited political will, among others.

This interactive event will include presentations, breakout sessions, a technology exhibit, panel discussions and informal networking opportunities.
