The UN Finally Protects the Ocean
Raise your hand if you weren’t alive the last time that an international agreement to protect the oceans was signed in 1982. Okay we know we can’t actually see you raising your hands, but the point is that it’s been a long time since nations have come together on ocean conservation. Until this month.
At the beginning of March, the UN signed the High Seas Treaty, which aims to classify 30% of the world’s seas as protected areas by 2030. The overall goal is to protect and recuperate marine life.
Cue the celebrations! This is huge! Yay oceans!
But also! ….Why the hell did it take this long to protect them?!
It took this long because the participating countries could not agree on things like funding and fishing rights. The final treaty was finally signed after 38 hours of talks.
While our leaders have been taking for-freaking-ever to decide how to protect the high seas, marine life has been suffering. The latest research shows that 10% of global marine species are at risk of global distinction.
The new treaty will regulate how fishing, shipping, and deep sea mining will take place in order to minimize pollution and protect marine life.
While we may wish this treaty came a whole lot sooner, we're just happy it's finally happening, given that oceans generate most of the oxygen we breathe, support our economies, feed us, and regulate the climate. But hey, what do we know?
Anyway…back to celebrating! Alexa, cue up Kool & the Gang!
