Humans relied upon them for eons to provide food, transportation and numerous ecosystem services that sustain our life on Earth. Modern industrialization and a growing human population has created a changing environment, with subsequent losses of biological diversity and ecosystem resources 1. Dispersed and distributed impact sources, lack of strong governance, poor community buy-in for the implementation of new rules, and resource conflicts often compound these problems.
In the last decade marine scientists, conservationists, policymakers, and stakeholders have come together, creating visions for a way forward 14,15, In some places, management action has led to the recovery of once decimated stocks There are new bans on plastic inputs to our oceans 20 , and an increasing focus on how managing for ocean resilience can combat stress and change 21, Marine reserves processes are becoming better understood, and reserves are being established at an increasing rate 23 , including the three largest reserves on the planet being created in 24 and 25, Working within and across political boundaries provide a means for oceans to continue to provide for the marine organisms as well as humans that rely on them 27, Finally, real progress is being made to change the course of climate change In order to continue this progress and make marine conservation a success story, we need a new generation of conservation scientists, resource managers, and policy makers.
Over an intensive 10 day period, the isMCS will cover concepts of evidence-based conservation science from population to ecosystem levels, including human dimensions, as well as topical issues in marine conservation.
From this students will develop some of the knowledge, tools, and skills necessary to become effective players in the field of Marine Conservation Science. University of Primorska Login. Evaluating and ranking the vulnerability of global marine ecosystems to anthropogenic threats.
