About the event
The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), the treaty organization charged with advancing marine conservation in the vast Southern Ocean, celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year. CCAMLR is a key part of the Antarctic Treaty System, and its membership includes the United States and other major countries active in Antarctic governance. While it has a reputation for promoting science and developing cutting-edge fisheries management rules, CCAMLR in recent years has faced challenges in continuing to establish large-scale marine protected areas. Please join the Wilson Center for a discussion of CCAMLR's achievements and its path forward, ahead of October's annual Commission meeting.
