The environment as a result of overfishing, pollution and destruction of coastal areas, mankind, the oceans and the marine life over the past few years, great damage is caused. Successful conservation projects, however, show that the oceans of the world are currently very, very resilient. There are now to be met, according to the authors of an international study, which was published in the journal Nature. Subject to the necessary efforts of the marine life in the world’s oceans, according to the authors, by 2050, to fully recover.
The study was led by Carlos Duarte and Susana Agustí, two professors from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KAUST). The project has worked for a leading marine scientists from four continents and ten countries and sixteen universities participated.

From the special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) revealed last year that a number of species of fish and other species are on the brink of extinction due to hunting and over-fishing. The oceans are becoming increasingly contaminated by oil spills, plastics, and effluent from the farms, and in the past few decades, contributed to the growing impact of climate change on the fading coral reefs, and increased the acidity of seawater is increasing.
We are at the point where we will be able to choose between the legacy of a buoyant and vibrant, the ocean, or in an irreversible disturbance to ocean

for The new study highlights the scale of the problem, but it also shows that the oceans are currently very, very resilient. Thus, it is bultruggenpopulatie since the ban on whaling greatly increased.The proportion of marine species, according to the International Union for Conservation of nature (IUCN), and is in danger of extinction, down from 18 percent in 2000 to 11.4 percent in 2019.
“We are at the point where we will be able to choose between the legacy of a buoyant and vibrant, the ocean, or in an irreversible disturbance to ocean,” said Duarte, a professor of marine science and the lead researcher, Red Sea-ecology of KAUST.
