The 5th International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC5) is a global forum that brings together ocean conservation professionals and high-level officials to inform, inspire and act on marine protected areas.

In advance of their 5th annual conference, IMPAC received more than 700 proposals from 66 countries around the globe. Over the past four months, an extensive review process was conducted to select the presenters at this prestigious conference. Five theme working groups made up of industry professionals, academics, and subject matter experts were assembled to review, deliberate, and score the proposals over a six-week period.

The WLC’s proposal, New Beginning: Qentol.Yen/ W̱sáneć Marine Guardians has been accepted to be included in the Congress Program to present at IMPAC5 which will take place from 3-9 February 2023.
