The Marine Biodiversity Observation Network Pole to Pole of the Americas - MBON Pole to Pole - is a Knowledge Sharing Network dedicated to the collection, use and sharing of marine biodiversity data in a coordinated, standardized manner leveraging on existing infrastructure managed by the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS; IOC-UNESCO), the GEO Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON), and the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS).

The MBON Pole to Pole aims to become a key resource for decision-making and management of living resources across countries in the Americas and support their reporting requirements of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD), and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
