Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas – Video

A video clip by GEF – SGP – UNDP – Reef Conservation

In Mauritius, 243 km2 of lagoon enclosed by 150km of fringing reef accommodates for a thriving marine biodiversity. Reef Conservation has been designing and developing Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas (VMCAs) since 2009. These are selected sites in the lagoon where communities agree that no extractive or destructive activities will be done.These conservation areas, both coastal and marine, will reduce human-induced pressures allowing ecosystems to be more resilient to the effects of global warming and other natural threats. – GEF SGP
