The countdown is on – Canada to host Fifth International Marine Protected Areas Congress in June 2022

“In June 2022, IMPAC5 will bring together the best minds in marine protection from around the world to set a global vision for marine protection. Marine protected areas are more than ocean health – they are also a good investment. Now more than ever, it is critical that we protect at least 30% of the ocean by 2030 in strong marine protected areas to safeguard the most important and vulnerable ecosystems and species, bolster Indigenous-led conservation, and ensure our vibrant ocean wildlife, habitats, and coastal communities can recover and flourish for generations to come. As Canada’s only nationwide charity dedicated solely to protecting Canada’s public land, ocean, and freshwater environments for over 50 years, CPAWS is proud to be a key partner of IMPAC5.
