    Marine Protected Areas For Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises
    by Erich Hoyt

    Description

    This definitive handbook launches a new chapter in cetacean conservation with its investigation into the habitat needs and protection requirements of some 84 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises. This is the first work to bridge the separate disciplines of marine protected areas (MPAs) and cetacean conservation. The first part of the book outlines the principles for creating the best possible MPAs for cetaceans, stemming from the identification of critical habitats and based on an inclusive process involving all stakeholders. The second part covers each of the 18 marine regions around the world. Included are marine region maps and tables outlining proposed and existing MPAs, detailed checklists for creating and implementing MPAs, an explanation of biosphere reserves, and relevant international legislation. The book also looks at regulation of international trade and hunting, fisheries agreements and promotion of whale watching, ecotourism and other non-consumptive economic policies.
