Marine Protected Areas

with Oceana Canada

Beyond our coasts, Oceana Canada seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy, and abundant as they once were.

/01CONTEXT

Oceana Canada partners with researchers, non-governmental organizations, the federal government, Indigenous peoples, and the fishing industry to study sensitive marine habitats and advocate for their protection. Canada has surpassed its marine conservation target of protecting 10% of our marine and coastal areas, in accordance with the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Aichi Target 11, but only marginally. More needs to be done to keep our oceans—and us—healthy.

/02CHALLENGE

It’s simple: protect more of our oceans.

/03SOLUTION

Evermaven deployed a three-person MAVEN team from coast to coast to coast and participated in no less than four expeditions: Imappivut; Northeast Pacific Seamounts; Central Coast of British Columbia; and Gulf of St. Lawrence. We then used a film series to communicate the importance of ocean protection.
