Master of Protected Area Management in James Cook University
Firstly, I look at the correlation to my responsibilities as analyst of marine protected area (MPA) at Department of Marine and Fisheries (DMF) of NTB Province. My current role is design and planning program for developing marine protected area (MPA) in NTB Province including collecting, surveying, managing and processing data and statistic of marine natural resources.
Secondly, there is many problems occurred inside the MPA, such as destructive fishing, tourism unsustainability effect, climate change, overlapping interest, massive and destruct development. The impact of these problems causes destruction of marine ecosystem in MPA. This problem would be also a constraint for Indonesia to adopt set goals in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially "life below water goal". To overcome these problems, NTB Province needs a better and innovative MPA management which integrated with multi stakeholders. I have discussed with my head department about this problem also he encouraged and supported to me to develop MPA in NTB Province. That is my reason to choose Master of Protected Area Management in James Cook University (JCU) to improve the capacity and capability of the DMF of NTB.
Moreover, I have visited JCU campus to explore about protected area management course when I attended short course in Queensland. JCU offer various subjects which can be contributed to link and enrich the connection of climate change issues and natural resources destruction issues. JCU offers relevant subjects to my needs such as Management of MPA, Marine Conservation Biology, Biodiversity and Climate Change, also Managing Coastal and Marine Environment. Subjects offered in this course are very critical to learn in order to be knowledgeable about various contexts of conservation. Moreover, JCU also have the best facilities and experts in the MPA, especially in the tropical water
