They will argue that we are at a #tippingpoint but have the opportunity to embrace the leadership, creativity, and innovation required to protect us and the planet, if only we have the courage and the will to act in time.

Ocean Wilderness disappearing globally

Scientists have mapped marine wilderness areas around the world for the first time. Wilderness areas are regions minimally impacted by human activities such as fishing, pollution and shipping.

The team, led by researchers in Australia, found that just 13.2% of the world's #oceans could be classed as wilderness areas. Most are in international waters away from human populations.

http://www.worldoceanobservatory.org/wor/deep-sea-mining-update-part-one

About this episode:
There has long been public opposition to deep sea mining, a technology that extracts resources from the ocean floor. In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill discusses the Solwara 1 deep sea mining experiment in Papua New Guinea and poses questions about the meaning of the project and its impacts on the environment and both local and national economies. And he highlights some of the various groups mounting opposition and legal action against the principle Nautilus Minerals and the various holding and investment companies involved with the project.
