I am joined by Dr. Stacy Baez, who works with the PEW Charitable Trust on their Bertarelli Ocean Legacy Program. Stacy and I discuss the work that PEW does all around the world to support the discussion, strategies, and implementation of Marine Protected Areas.
Stacy's job involves traveling to different countries and speaking to governments as well as other stakeholders about the benefits of MPAs and help them to understand how MPAs could help their local situation.
Warning: There are times where I speak too much during the interview (I apologize for that). I tend to get excited and sidetracked when discussing MPAs. Dr. Baez answered every question with fantastic answers and I am proud to publish this episode.
Share your thoughts on the status of MPAs around the world in our Speak Up for Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
