This study investigates stakeholder participation in selected examples of existing co-management arrangements developed to manage marine protected areas (MPAs) within the wider Caribbean. An understanding of the factors contributing to and dynamics of stakeholder participation is essential for promoting effective resource co-management. Data were collected from individuals living within the communities closest to or most affected by the MPAs, inquiring about their participation in and knowledge of MPA management. This article seeks to answer the question: What factors influence participation in co-management? Factors found to be predictors of participation, including occupation, age, and gender are discussed, as is the relationship between participating in MPA management and feeling one's interests are represented.
