The status of many endangered migratory marine species has continued to deteriorate over the last twenty years despite regulatory measures and the creation of marine protected areas

The Swimways Initiative, MIGRAVIAS, aims to reverse these trends by providing tangible protection for species that move along predictable routes and building resilience to climate change. MigraMar will work with national governments to identify and protect at least seven swimways (MigraVias) that link Marine Protected Areas across the Eastern Pacific region. This initiative involves transboundary collaboration in data collection, analysis, management, enforcement, and sustainable and equitable use of the benefits generated.

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

Start date: 01/01/2021
End date: 31/12/2031
