Balearic MPA Pride
Fostering a stronger link between coastal communities and marine protected areas provides the enabling conditions that help improve all other factors and strengthen political will to better preserve MPAs.
The MPA Pride initiative is part of the Marilles Foundation’s “MPA Solutions Fund”, aiming to encourage local engagement and support for Marine Protected Areas in the Balearics by the local population. The projects aim to engage the local communities in the preservation and protection of the local marine habitats, by fostering a sense of ownership over their local waters and resources. The project works with target stakeholder groups (fishermen, diving centres, schools, local traders, NGOs) to identify specific actions that each one of them can take to become better custodians of their local marine environment.
