Samper said that the marine ecosystems the new MPAs are designed to protect provide critical habitat for a number of species, including nearly 2,000 species of fish and more than 130 species of sharks and rays.“Coastal areas lined with biologically diverse and pristine mangrove forests will also benefit from MPA expansions under the new commitment,” he said. But, Samper noted, “The biggest beneficiaries of additional MPAs in the Bismarck Sea will be people, whose livelihoods and food security depends on the health of the marine habitats of Papua New Guinea.”PNG was just one of the numerous participants in the 2018 Our Ocean Conference that made pledges totaling more than $10 billion to protect some 14 million square kilometers (5.4 million square miles) of the world’s oceans.Spinner dolphins in the Bismarck Sea.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored
