Turning The High Seas Into The World’s Largest Nature Reserve

Sounds like a good idea to me!

ScienceSwitch

How we can save the fishing industry and protect the ocean at the same time? The answer:  create a marine reserve (a huge one). In this TED Talk, marine ecologist Enric Sala shares his bold strategy to safeguard the high seas by making a giant marine reserve that covers two-thirds of the world’s ocean. Sala believes protecting the high seas will help us restore the ecological, economic and social benefits of the ocean.

“When we can align economic needs with conservation, miracles can happen.”

THIS IS COOL. I WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING ELSE, TOO!
