GOBI-IKI Workshop on Migratory Connectivity

Nereus Senior Research Fellow Daniel Dunn (Duke) hosted a workshop on global migratory connectivity with the Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative (GOBI) and the International Climate Initiative (IKI) February 15 to 17 at Duke University, North Carolina.

The workshop discussed migratory corridors as an important aspect of ecologically or biologically important areas (EBSA’s) for migratory species, including ones in marine environments. Participants conducted an extensive literature review on global marine migratory corridors and provided feedback on ways to incorporate them into biodiversity conservation policy.
