National Geographic

The French edition of National Geographic is publishing a special supplement on marine protected areas, in partnership with the Agence des aires marines protégées and IUCN.

national geographic bdFounded in 1888, National Geographic is an institution among science-oriented popular magazines. In October 2013, on the occasion of its 125th birthday, it publishes a full check-up of the health of the oceans.  Feature papers include:

  • The Sundarban mangrove swamps in Bangladesh, fighting for survival in the face of climate change and economic development;
  • Ross Sea in Antarctica, and how not-so-sheltered habitats must be protected from human overexploitation;
  • The Florida Keys in the United States, where authorities strive to accommodate tourism and conservation;
  • Iroise Sea in France, where park managers, researchers and economic players join forces  to sustainably develop an oft-overlooked resource – algae;
  • …and many more stories from across the Blue Planet.

Printed separately in English and in French, the supplement will be bundled with the October 2013 issue of National Geographic, in France and in selected countries, to convey the mission of IMPAC3 to the larger public. It will also be included in each participant’s congress bag.
