The international community has set a goal

to protect at least 10% of the ocean by 2020.

                 As of 2015

over 11,000 MPAs have been established,

covering approximately 3% of the world’s oceans.

However, many endangered

marine species migrate.

We need to create

multi-national marine corridors

to make MPAs more effective.

Galapagos

Ecuador

Malpelo

Columbia

Cocos Island

Costa Rica

can help restore bio-diversity to our oceans.

In marine reserves where f ishing activity is restricted,
and laws are properly enforced, depleted species can recover in as little as 2–5 years.
