  • UN participants – a group of 50 countries- have signed up to the 30×30 coalition and aims to protect 30% of land and sea by 2030.
  • They have also aim to agree on a legal framework for protecting international waters and biodiversity and govern the high seas.
  • “The treaty won’t create protections for hotspots but will hopefully create a structure so that we can create international parks for the first time,” said Doug McCauley, associate professor of ocean science at the Benioff Ocean Initiative at the University of California.
