MPA-30-yearsWebsite450 De Hoop’s Marine Protected Area turned 30 years in 2015 and we’re celebrating with workshops and events with a marine focus where guests will learn more about De Hoop’s MPA which covers an area of roughly 253 kilometers:

“De Hoop MPA is critically important for the conservation of the Southern Right whale (Eubalaena australis) which is an endangered species. De Hoop MPA, together with St. Sebastian Bay contain 70-80% of cow-calf pairs on the South African coast and ranks as probably the most important nursery area for Southern Right whales in the world.” – WWF South Africa
