Theory of Change

We believe that effective stewardship and management of our oceans requires decision-making that is informed by knowledge of the state of ocean ecosystems and the performance of management actions.

Our Mission

Through a focus on improving MPA monitoring, we are pioneering scientific and practical assessments of the changing condition of ocean ecosystems and the performance of MPA networks.

Our Goal

To lead innovations in the way MPAs are evaluated and results are shared to provide decision-makers and the public with timely and credible information that is useful for making sound management decisions.
