Marine Parks

Argentine Sea

 

 

Project description

Over a third of Argentina’s territory is found at the sea. However, the Argentine sea is one of the most threatened on the planet, with only 3% currently protected. As a result, more than 60 marine species are in danger of extinction. Protecting marine ecosystems will protect their biodiversity and promote the sustainably use of their fisheries. Argentina needs to reach 2020 with 10% of the sea under some protected status to fulfill its international commitments, and position itself as a regional leader in environmental protection.

 

 

Fundación Flora y Fauna Argentina works together with The Conservation Land Trust Argentina, the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea, and the national government to promote the regulation of the law that establishes the National System of Marine Protected Areas and promote the creation of five Marine national parks.

 

 

FFyFA contributes with a wide communication campaign destined to generate a national and international movement in favor of the creation of the marine parks. To achieve this, a campaign titled "Sea Time has Come: No blue no green" has been created, for which several journalistic notes have been made in the newspapers, and radio and TV interviews. In addition, there have been a series of short videos intended to be "viralized" through social networks. Some of these videos have already been seen by more than 600,000 people.

 

 

This project is carried out together with The Conservation Land Trust, the Patagonian Sea Conservation Forum, and national authorities.
