The Pelagos Initiative launches a call for interest


Call for Expression of Interest for the proposal of a project led by a multi-stakeholder consortium on the theme: "Ecosystem-based conservation in the Pelagos Sanctuary"

The Pelagos Initiative is launching a call for expression of interest for the creation of a consortium responsible for the development and coordination of a multi-stakeholder project aimed at strengthening the conservation and protection of the Pelagos Sanctuary.    

Context: Stretching over 87,500 km2 between France, Monaco, and Italy, the Pelagos Sanctuary is the first transboundary area in the Mediterranean dedicated to the protection of marine mammals. This area, particularly rich in plankton, harbors a remarkable biodiversity, including a significant concentration of various species of whales and dolphins.

In 2021, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (FPA2), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Network of Marine Protected Area Managers in the Mediterranean (MedPAN) joined forces to create the Pelagos Initiative. This commitment from civil society will finance activities for the protection, conservation, and promotion of the Sanctuary, in accordance with the Pelagos Agreement management plan.        

Objective of the call for expression of interest:

  • Support the creation of a consortium enabling transboundary and integrated collaboration within the Pelagos Sanctuary.
  • Support a structuring project led by the consortium on the theme "Ecosystem-based conservation in the Pelagos Sanctuary”


Submit your note of intent before April 19, 2024.
