The Second ASCOBANS Workshop on Management of MPAs for Small Cetaceans is scheduled to take place from 31 May to 2 June 2022 in Helsinki, Finland, at the kind invitation of the Ministry of the Environment, Finland. 

The purposes of the workshop, building on the results from the first workshop, are to:

  • Continue to develop and discuss examples of SMART conservation objectives for small cetacean MPAs, including Natura 2000 sites, by refining and adding to the results of the first workshop  in order to arrive at a more complete list; and
  • Continue to develop and discuss examples of ambitious and innovative practical conservation measures for small cetacean MPAs, including Natura 2000 sites, building on the results from the first workshop. This will lead to a more complete and concrete toolbox of conservation measures for small cetacean MPAs (including. Natura 2000 sites), and will also take into account the challenges presented by climate change.

The workshop is jointly organised by the Ministry of the Environment of Finland, WWF Germany, WWF Sweden, Coalition Clean Baltic, Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, and ASCOBANS. 

Due to limited seats, participation to the workshop will be by invitation.
