Managers of the 50 UNESCO World Heritage marine sites regularly come together to share their best practices, discuss solutions, and forge a path forward together. As local guardians of the world’s most iconic Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), they have confronted every imaginable problem facing our oceans and many have created leading edge solutions. The fifth edition will be held in the Wadden Sea (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands) in early October 2023. The conference will build on previous editions held in Hawaii, USA (2010), Scandola Reserve, France (2013), Galapagos Islands, Ecuador (2016), and Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, USA (2019).
