Attempting to explain what a Marine Protected Area (MPA) is or why it is important can be extremely challenging—especially when your audience lives far away from the beach or local MPAs are not easily accessible.

For that reason, we were delighted to stumble upon a new illustrated guide written by Amelia Urry and posted on Grist, entitled “More Fish, Bigger Fish, More Sex: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Marine Protected Areas (But Were Too Afraid to Ask).”

Picture 1With bright colors, captivating illustrations, a healthy dose of humor, and—most importantly—straightforward language that is easy to understand, this clever guide is a great learning tool for those who are new to MPAs and a great resource for those who want to educate others.
