Papa New Guinea Triples MPAs

These reserves are vital to mitigate the impacts of climate change and halt biodiversity loss – coastal seas contain 70% of all ocean biodiversity and all of the world’s mangroves and seagrass beds. More than 9,000 people from over 100 Indigenous communities helped design the new MPAs. Read the full story on WCS.
