MPA Guardian is a tool that will allow anyone to help protect
our sensitive marine reserves through the crowdsourced
reporting of activities observed by any concerned citizens.
Through submitting reports on this website or our
smartphone applications, you can help to document any
damaging or illegal activities that you observe.
With your help, we can make sure that these pristine ocean
parks stay healthy and bountiful for generations to come.
Protecting our sensitive marine reserves through
Integrated low cost technology
solutions drastically improve our
ability to observe and collaborate data
about illegal, unreported and
unregulated (IUU) fishing so that
action can be taken to stop this
destructive, illegal activity.
The central hub is a web-based
information system that can capture
and analyze official and crowd-
sourced data on fishing vessels and
exploited areas. This flexible and
complementary suite of technologies
drastically improves our ability to
manage our impact on the oceans,
shape effective ocean policy, maintain
food security and fish sustainably. .
