Tell the UN We Need More Marine Protected Areas

The Nature Conservancy released a new report saying more marine space needs to be set aside for protection. This is exactly what is being discussed and hopefully agreed upon at the UN biodiversity summit this week.

Only 1.7% of the world's oceans are protected. We need to bring that number up, while acknowledging that reserves are one very good tool of many needed to save the oceans.

Speaking of the Nature Conservancy, Eco Ocean is running the NYC Marathon to raise money for the Nature Conservancy. It's a great organization so I'm happy to raise money for them. Check out my fund page for more information.

See the full TNC report here.

Hurry Up
