Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
This intervention involves protecting important habitats or ‘refuges’ for marine and freshwater mammals in areas where climate change impacts are predicted to be less severe, such as cooler upwelling areas. Restricting human activities in such areas is likely to increase resilience to the threats of climate change.
