Dr Lema will present on the Educational Marine Areas (EMA) concept, originating in the Marquesas Islands (French Polynesia) in 2012 and expanding to over 1000 locations, including Australia’s first EMA in Margaret River. EMAs are small coastal areas actively managed by primary and secondary school students. Accompanied by their teacher and assisted by expert marine scientists, the students study the area and its environmental values and decide how to preserve its natural and cultural heritage.
