BEST Webinar: Eco-acoustic monitoring applied to marine biodiversity conservation

The webinar “Eco-acoustic monitoring applied to marine biodiversity conservation”, organised by IUCN through PANORAMA and the BEST programmes, took place on 10 December.

This event was dedicated to initiatives which have developed eco-acoustic techniques for marine biodiversity conservation. By gathering experts from Macaronesia (Canary Archipelago) and Indian Ocean (Scattered Islands), the discussion enabled to share good practices and facilitate dialogue among practitioners.

Thanks a lot to those who joined this online event to making it a success! For those who could not make it or would like to watch it again, the recording and the presentations are available online.

As part of IUCN Journey to Marseille – a series of online events leading up to the IUCN World Conservation Congress in 2021 – BEST webinars aim at giving stage to local stakeholders from the European Overseas to understand the role of the latter and challenges they face in conservation
