Learn more about the new Caribbean benthic maps published by The Nature Conservancy and partners.
For the first time, Caribbean countries and territories now have a clear picture of the habitats found beneath the waves surrounding their shores. Created using high-resolution satellite images, aerial fly-over technology, drones, and divers, these maps are intended to accelerate and guide a diverse array of marine conservation efforts and policy decisions. Discover how the maps can inform climate adaptation initiatives and identify critical sites for establishing marine protected areas and restoring the essential habitats millions of people depend on every day.
Presented by The Nature Conservancy’s Donna Blake, Jamaica Program Director, Dr. Steve Schill, Lead Scientist, and Valerie McNulty, Spatial Ecologist, this webinar is for our Caribbean partners and other stakeholders who are interested in learning how to access the maps and use them to help change the way we collectively protect our ocean and coasts. The presentation is followed by a question-and-answer session.
