We are now in the process of planning 3 important activities:

Caribbean to be held in Tobago on late March (announcement will be sent out
via CaMPAM by the end of this month).

Venezuela, on early November. We will be able to invite a number of MPA
managers to profile their MPAs (Success stories), a seminar on the production
of outreach materials, etc. Announcement will be sent out next June.
3. A pilot mentorship program for MPA managers
Your subscription to CaMPAM yahoo group will allow you to keep posted on the
