Seeking marine protected area restoration expertise

The IUCN-WCPA Ecological Restoration Task Force is seeking advice on best practices for ecological restoration in marine protected areas. This advice will contribute to the development of a best practice guideline that is intended to provide a consistent, globally-applicable, principles-based approach to planning and decision making about ecological restoration in protected areas. If you are interested and knowledgeable
about marine protected areas management and/or governance issues that might influence the advice IUCN-WCPA should provide on restoration in marine protected areas – and if you have three to four hours per month to spare between now and June 2011 – please let us know. Responses will be assessed and the sucessful candidate will be recommended as a participant to the Task Force chair.

If you wish to volunteer please contact: Karen Keenleyside (karen.keenleyside@pc.gc.ca)
