Ocean Marine Reserves to visit

Only a small fraction of marine life is being protected. 70% of our world is made up of water, interestingly 70-75% of our bodies is also made up of water. Less than 1% of our water is protected from the devastation that overfishing and overeating fish is doing to our world’s waters. Species after species are being depleted in our oceans. Bluefin Tuna being one of the species that has become endangered. Some restaurants of our world still serve Bluefin Tuna on their menu. Mitsubishi has cornered a large percentage of this beautiful species for profit.

 

In your travels think about visiting some of the Marine Reserves there are in the world. Imagine a sea that is plentiful and full of an array of amazing species.

 

In Western Australia you have Shark Bay, Hamelin Pool Nature Reserve.

    Interesting facts ; also need to consider coral bleaching and warmer temperatures in , particulary the tropics . You could add locations like Sipadan ( Malaysia ) as under threat too . I have seen a lot of bleaching first hand in the pacific and especially the Great Barrier Reef ! Its the ocean equivalent of working into an old western ghost town !
