Not Much Water Wilderness Remains

The last wild ocean,
University of California - Santa Barbara, July 26, 2018.


Not Much Left

"...only 13 percent of the ocean can still be classified as wilderness."

Isolated Wilderness

"They found that most wilderness is located in the Arctic and Antarctic or around remote Pacific island nations such as French Polynesia. Because human activities are concentrated near land, very little wilderness remains in coastal habitats such as coral reefs, salt marshes and kelp forests."

Gone in 50

"...an immediate need for conservation policies to recognize and protect the unique values of marine wilderness...We know these marine wilderness areas are declining catastrophically, and protecting them must become a focus of multilateral environmental agreements...if not, they will likely disappear within 50 years."
