Confronting modern marine conservations challenges in Cuba

Dr. Jake Kritzer, Midd’95, is Director of Diagnostics & Design, Fishery Solutions Center, Environmental Defense Fund. Situated at the nexus of the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Western Atlantic Ocean, Cuba harbors considerable marine biodiversity. Cuba has also experienced profound cultural, political, and economic swings in its history, which have important implications for its rich ecological assets. To protect those assets, Cuba has constructed a robust marine environmental policy architecture, and made important progress in implementing those policies through management in practice. However, important scientific and governance challenges remain. Cuba is working to confront those challenges, and those efforts are critical as the world and Cuba’s place in it change.
