2015's top 10 developments for the ocean

More of the ocean, in fact more of the planet, was protected in 2015 than ever before.

Palau, one of the smallest countries in the world, committed 500 square kilometers and Chile announced its intent to protect close to 1 million square kilometers around Easter Island and the Desventuradas Islands. The average size of the new marine protected areas announced in 2015 was approximately 650,000 square kilometers — compared to an average size of about 1,000 square kilometers in the year 2000. The next great challenge will be finding effective strategies to enforce protective measures in vast swaths of ocean so these massive ocean conservation gains do not become ineffectual.
