High Seas Treaty Could Help Protect 30% Of Our Oceans

A new United Nations Treaty known as the High Seas Treaty has been agreed upon, which may help to protect up to 30% of our oceans and marine life, an increase from the current 1%. The treaty should help to encourage the sustainable management of up to two-thirds of our oceans that make up the High Seas area through agreed frameworks, and will give animals such as whales and sharks migratory routes.

Some of the countries in the United Nations include Canada, Australia, India, Brazil, Belgium, and Sweden, alongside 187 other member states. Now, they will all have to work together to protect the health of the oceans.
