**Deadline for Proposals – April 30th 2022**


The IUCN Joint SSC/WCPA Marine Mammal Protected Areas Task Force (MMPATF) would like to remind those interested of the final opportunity to submit preliminary Areas of Interest to inform the future identification of IMMAs in the “South East Tropical and Temperate Pacific Ocean” Region.

The aim of the IMMA classification is to identify discrete habitat areas that are judged to be important for one or more marine mammal species and that have the potential to be delineated and managed for conservation. This will be achieved by the use of the IMMA selection criteria, which have been developed in partnership with the marine mammal science and conservation community.

These criteria will be used as part of a process of regionally convened expert workshops, where information on marine mammals and potential Areas of Interest for IMMAs will be critically assessed.

The MMPATF would now like to remind those interested to submit their Areas of Interest, and other relevant information on marine mammals, which could be of assistance to identify IMMAs in the “South East Tropical and Temperate Pacific Ocean” Region at the next IMMA Regional Workshop of experts, 06-10 June 2022.

Please follow the link below to submit your IMMA Area of Interest for consideration by the MMPATF (information and additional instructions are provided on each page of the standard submission form).

Looking forward to hearing from you, best regards and thanks you for your support and cooperation,
