Scientists around the world all agree, the best way to save marine life in our oceans is to protect it from mankind.
The establishment of marine protected areas around the world is crucial to preserve biodiversity, fisheries resources, and some of the world’s most iconic and threatened species.
Less than five percent of our entire ocean is designated as ‘Protected’ from human activities. With only half of these areas being strongly protected no-take marine reserves.
