In July of last year, you could read about the launch of the ProtectedSeas Navigator, a digital, open access, and interactive map of regulatory information of over 21,000 managed saltwater and coast areas worldwide, including the high seas. The map is produced and maintained by ProtectedSeas, an Anthropocene Institute-funded project that has compiled regulation data from around the world and made it digital and easy to understand.
For this work, the ProtectedSeas Navigator has now been nominated for a Webby. This recognition from the “leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet” is a fantastic acknowledgment, showing that raising awareness on marine life protection is an important action both for environmental sustainability and for maintaining the fish populations that are so important for the livelihood of many coastal communities around the world.
