Establishing 10% Marine Protection in Bangladesh: A Global Hotspot for Threatened Marine Megafauna

WCS will empower the GoB to achieve its goal of protecting 10% of the country’s marine environment by establishing at least two new MPAs to increase the country’s MPA coverage to 5% by 2020, with clear plans made for additional  MPAs to reach 10% protection in the next five years. Balancing fishing livelihoods with biodiversity protection means these MPAs will be multi-use, incorporating sustainable fisheries management within a larger ecosystem approach.
