An Action Plan for the Conservation of Cetaceans in Libya - produced 
by the Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas 
(RAC/SPA), Libya’s Environment General Authority (EGA) and Marine 
Biology Research Center (MBRC) - has been recently approved by the 
Libyan Government.

The Plan includes priority actions on Education and awareness, 
Capacity building, Research and Management and advocates an ecosystem-
based approach to preserve the integrity and diversity of marine 
ecosystems.

In order to elaborate this Plan, a mission to Libya was organised in 
December 2004. A number of researchers and experts from EGA, MBRC and 
the Al-Fateh University participated in the meetings and provided 
valuable information. The mission included visits to local fish markets 
and interviews with local fishermen. A draft Action Plan was submitted 
in March 2005. A revision of the draft was completed in November 2006, 
based on which the final document was produced:

Bearzi G.  2006.  Action Plan for the conservation of cetaceans in 
Libya.  Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas 
(RAC/SPA), Libya’s Environment General Authority and Marine Biology 
Research Center.  50 pp.
