Welcome to the LMMA Network website

We are a group of marine conservation practitioners working in Asia and the Pacific who have joined together to increase the success of our efforts.

Our website provides useful information and resources for practitioners, as well as stories and lessons from communities that are using a locally-managed marine area (LMMA) approach in the management and conservation of their marine resources.

Our website is aimed at practitioners, researchers, students, and anyone else interested in marine conservation. We hope you enjoy your visit and we welcome your feedback.
