Only 25% of Australia’s #MPAs are fully protected. Studies indicate partially protected areas don’t contribute much to wildlife #conservation, consume resources & occupy space that could otherwise be allocated to better protection.
Incredible! After 150 years of absence, a wolf was spotted in the woods near #Geneva. Conservation measures, whether on land or in the #ocean, restore the natural balance of #ecosystems, and allow the gradual return of wildlife. #30by30 https://www.france24.news/en/2021/01/geneva-fauna-a-wolf-seen-in-geneva-for-the-first-time-in-150-years.html
Well said @ThomsonFiji, “Proper protection of our shared #ocean means changing the way governments, scientists, the private sector, and citizens work together to achieve sustainable outcomes.” #30by30 #BlueEconomy
Great to see such #PrivateSector initiatives focusing on #sustainability and #ecology. Transitioning to a more sustainable economic model that both safeguards and protects #nature is crucial. #SustainableMarkets
