Planning a better future for our oceans

In Canada, our oceans are used by everyone – wildlife, industry and communities. In some areas all three of these groups live, work and play in the same space, creating the potential for conflict that can diminish benefits to all three.

Ocean planning, also called marine spatial planning, helps us understand how these shared spaces are used, where there are overlaps and how to best manage human activities so that people and nature can thrive together.

Visit oceanplanning.wwf.ca to explore the powerful interactive map created by WWF-Canada to capture vivid pictures of how people and wildlife use our shared ocean spaces.
