Nagoya 2010: how will our seas look in 2050?


The world's seas and oceans are perhaps our richest source of biodiversity. But rising pollution, the effects of climate change and over-fishing are threatening the future of marine biodiversity across the globe. UNEP's Marine Biodiversity Assessment and Outlook reports give a detailed overview of how these factors - and many more - are affecting marine life in 18 world regions. They predict the extent of marine biodiversity in the year 2050 and outline vital actions that need to be taken to prevent extinctions and continue the sustainable use of our seas.
