iLCP is partnering with WildAid's Marine Program on a series of storytelling efforts. This partnership leverages WildAid's critical marine efforts and iLCP's authentic storytelling to influence decision-makers, support conservation efforts, and lead critical stakeholders and local communities to action. With WildAid, we will work with local communities to address five key aspects of MPAs: surveillance and enforcement; policies and consequences; consistent funding; training and mentorship; and community engagement.

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are designated marine and coastal zones protected for conservation. However, classifying these MPAs is only the first step; without continued awareness and stewardship, these are nothing more than lines on a map. The success of MPAs is a combination of resource and capacity building, policy and enforcement, training, and community engagement. When MPAs are properly regulated, they can address overfishing, habitat destruction, and loss of marine wildlife, having a positive ripple effect on marine ecosystems and coastal communities.
