Green Drinks - Bigger and Better Marine protected areas
Our July Green Drinks Regina Classen, of the IWT will talk about the aims of the Bigger and Better Marine Protected Areas (MPA) initiative. Regina, IWT co-ordinator, campaigns in partnership with Coastwatch and Seas at Risk to promote the establishment of a Marine Protected Areas Network. MPAs are a proven way to achieve much needed ecosystem restoration, sustainable fishing and climate change mitigation. In theory, MPAs provide safe havens for animals and plants to grow and reproduce without the threat of human activity. A properly policed and extensive MPA network would provide a vital safe haven for wildlife.

Date & Time: 19:00 pm start – 20:00 pm finish, Tuesday 2nd July

Location: J. W. Sweetman, 1-2 Burgh Quay, Dublin. How to find us: Top floor of Sweetman’s Pub
