Marine Protected Areas - a new interactive online map
The Dutch Caribbean has a new way to access marine protected area (MPA) information focused on ease of use for boaters, fishermen, and the public. Available online at ProtectedSeas.net is an interactive online map of marine protected and managed areas for our islands and the Caribbean as a whole. The map provides one-click access to detailed MPA information such as allowed activities, regulations, management resources, and links to official publications. In July 2017, with help from DCNA, ProtectedSeas largely completed the Dutch Caribbean (see Figure 1 and Figure 2).
