Ocean Action Hub

10 Nov 2020 - While UNESCO’s marine World Heritage sites are best known for their outstanding ecosystems and iconic biodiversity, it is their capacity to turn science and innovation into on-the-ground action and decision making that drives their conservation leadership.

The exhibit 'Protecting UNESCO marine World Heritage through scientific research' highlights how local experts are spearheading scientific innovation through environmental DNA, special camera techniques, and the use of satellite data coupled with species tagging.

Through four scientific research missions carried out by Monaco Explorations, the exhibition illustrates how scientific research has become crucial for the sustainable conservation of the world’s most treasured places.
