A colleague of mine and the Facebook Group Manager of the Citizen Scientist for the Oceans group posted a couple of articles about Marine Conservation and Marine Protected Areas. In each article, the topic was how Marine Protected Areas were not as successful because they couldn't protect against 2 things:
MPAs work for that they are designed to do, protect habitats from human uses such as over fishing, tourism, oil and gas drilling, and mining. It does not protect against bad water quality (nutrients and sedimentation) and climate change.
Listen to the podcast as to why this is so and what we need to do about it.
