The Beaufort Ecosystem Biodiversity (BEB) Decade Action is to integrate multi-year coastal and offshore research and monitoring programs to provide a comprehensive assessment of Beaufort Sea biodiversity across a wide range of habitats, including data-poor areas adjacent to the Central Arctic Ocean (CAO).

Biodiversity will be assessed with an ecosystem-based approach providing the environmental context in which biodiversity change, and associated mechanisms of change, can be identified. This action will contribute to co-developing and enhancing monitoring of the Beaufort Sea to protect and manage the ecosystem biodiversity.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Marine Life 2030
