Why a day to celebrate Marine Protected Areas? Well, this helps us collectively appreciate the value of MPAs and how they benefit both us and the incredible marine biodiversity they designed to protect. It’s a day to share stories and information about why and how we need to conserve our oceans and keep building support for MPAs. We hope that MPA Day will help more South Africans recognise the important role MPAs in preserving our oceans for both people and nature.
