The first of six webinars in the GOBI webinar series was delivered on Wednesday 28 October 2020, introducing Important Marine Mammal Areas – IMMAs.
The presenters – Erich Hoyt, Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara and Simone Panigada, representing the Marine Mammal Protected Area Task Force – explained the concept of IMMAs and the efforts undertaken so far in applying it across the ocean in a region-by-region process.
The webinar was attended by over 100 participants, with ample time at the end for interaction with the presenters during a Q&A session moderated by the GOBI Secretariat.
The recorded webinar is available to watch on demand on the GOBI YouTube channel (link). The slides used during the presentation are available for download here.
