Five-year global plan to rehabilitate sick seas around the world
Behind it are a number of organizations and charities that will work together on the project for five years. Initially, work will be done on the protection and restoration of three major naval sites, the Laos Sea Escape near Fiji, the Southern Ocean in Antarctica, and the Tristan de Cunha in the South Atlantic.
“Our oceans are in crisis and their nature is very complex,” said Karen Sack, head of the Blue Nature Alliance’s Ocean Unit. The global plan will focus on conserving key marine areas and enhancing natural sites. In the meantime, local populations will be included in the plan.
