Marine BON Webinars

The webinars provide an opportunity for the MBON community members to share ideas, talk about methods and protocols, progress in specific programs or manuscripts, and address issues in developing a community of practice. We invite members of other groups, such as GEO Blue Planet, GEO Wetlands, the Freshwater BON, and any of the various GEO BON Working Groups and Task Forces, etc ., to participate, since we all share common problems and goals.

The webinars also provide a forum for seminars and lectures on issues of relevance to the research and applications of marine biodiversity.

MBON Webinar and community discussion
A Marine Biodiversity Observation Network Pole-to-Pole of the Americas in support of conservation and sustainable use of living resources in the sea – Enrique Montes
Knowledge on the status and trends in marine biodiversity, and associated drivers of biodiversity change across the Americas is sparse and geographically uneven. International cooperation is needed to fill observational gaps to satisfy policy targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Convention of Biological Diversity. The Marine Biodiversity Observation Network Pole to Pole of the Americas (MBON Pole to Pole) responds to this need by coordinating data collection using standard methods, and facilitating sharing of information and data, capacity building, technology transfer between nations and groups, and voluntary participation of citizens in biodiversity monitoring.
