Ocean Witness is the newest element of the MPA Action Agenda with a focus on campaigning amongst both policy makers and the wider public. Ocean Witness is a collection of almost 40 real stories told by real people: the Ocean Witnesses. These are women and men that are (fully) dedicated to the preservation of oceans. They’ve shared their witness story on changes in their environment and tell you how they are contributing to a better future for our oceans, each with their own solution.
