Nations debate giant Antarctic ocean sanctuaries

Nations debate giant Antarctic ocean sanctuaries | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it
Multi-nation talks on creating two vast sanctuaries in Antarctic waters began Wednesday with a key official saying a marine reserve protecting the pristine Ross Sea had the better chance of success.
Garry Rogers's insight:

Great idea.  But all preserves remain connected to global systems.  They have porous boundaries and as winds blow, waters flow, and humans come and go, the boundaries are breeched, and preserves are invaded.  All Earth life systems are in decline.  Unless the decline is stopped, no preserve will last for long.
