SeaBlue Publications

As countries gather in Montreal in December 2022 for the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) and in Vancouver in February 2023 for IMPAC5 (5th International Marine Protected Areas Congress), this survey was conducted to provide an updated understanding of public opinion. The research was also designed to identify frames that motivate Canadians to care for, and act on, matters of ocean health and to support marine conservation efforts.

This report is based on a survey conducted with a sample of 1,687 Canadians (18 or older), conducted from November 17 to 30, 2022.
