MiCO: Migratory Connectivity in the Ocean

Case Studies & System Demo

The following case studies are part of a growing collection. Their purpose is to demonstrate that:

  • All migratory species encounter a range of stressors that have cumulative impacts on their populations. No migratory species has one single stressor affecting its population.
  • Ecological connections between EEZs and ABNJ are the norm, not rare events.
  • Events in one location can impact distant locations, as a result of connectivity created by migratory species. For example, tourism in one country’s economy may be negatively affected by the lack of conservation in distant EEZs or ABNJ.
