The "Coral Reef MPAs of East Asia and Micronesia" project is a collaborative effort between The WorldFish Center (ReefBase Project) and Japan Wildlife Research Center (JWRC), and funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, as part of the Japan-Palau ICRI secretariat Plan of Action for 2005 -2007.
The WorldFish Center and JWRC are both non-profit organizations, and we are undertaking this project for non-commercial free distribution within the East Asian and Micronesian regions.
The objectives of this project are:
- To update existing MPA information that is currently on MPA Global, including updating MPA boundary information.
- To capture additional specific information on MPAs with Coral Reefs.
- To produce a stand-alone DVD with MPA information and GIS maps for free distribution.
- To produce a dedicated website for the "MPAs of East Asia and Micronesia" with MPA information and GIS maps.
The MPA information for East Asia and Micronesia was obtained from MPA Global / UNEP-WCMC. The MPA data were reviewed and updated according to input from partners in the region. All updated and additional information will be feedback to MPA Global / UNEP-WCMC.
