Cetacean conservation planning: dealing with uncertainty & data gaps
Webinar recording of Fabrice Stephenson, 27 April 2021 (36 mins + Q&A)
In this webinar, Fabrice Stephenson (NIWA) presented a tool that can be used to visualise cetacean diversity hotspots with varying levels of uncertainty.
The visualisation presented in this webinar identifies the best locations in Aotearoa New Zealand for protection and can help to incorporate uncertainty for marine spatial planning and/or decision-makers for marine or resource consent applications.
The method underpinning the visualisation is applicable to other species/taxa, and can be used as a framework for incorporating uncertainty when dealing with multiple species. This provides a robust and efficient step towards better decision-making for conservation management in a participatory process.
