The Secretariat for the Pacific Environment Programme (SPREP) has published the Regional Marine Species Programme and Action Plans 2022-2026.
These provide strategic guidance on priorities for conserving and managing 5 priority marine species groups: whales and dolphins; marine turtles; dugong; sharks and rays; and seabirds.
There are 9 themes under each of the action plans for species as well as for an overall multispecies action plan which combines all species. These themes are: research and monitoring; climate change; ecosystem and habitat protection; threat reduction; cultural significance and value; legislation, policy and management; ecotourism and livelihoods; capacity building and collaboration; education, awareness and communication.
