Scientists Have Prepared a 30-year plan to revive Marine Life

To revive the marine life by 2050: If you are not familiar with the 14th number of Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, let’s introduce them immediately; “To protect and use the oceans, seas and marine resources in a sustainable way for sustainable development”, scientists have completed preparations for a 30-year plan to achieve this.

Despite rapid global warming, increased acidification, plastic pollution, expanding dead zones and other environmental problems caused by human beings, scientists think that the seabed ecosystem can be revived and developed.

The team that prepared the plan said, “There is a very serious workload to be done before us, but our new plan sees the resistant and prone to the change as the hope of the future. “If we give these species a chance to recover, marine life can be revived within a generation.”

“We are at the point of choosing between a durable and vibrant ocean heritage and an irreversibly damaged ocean,” he says.

And it continues, “Our study documents the recovery of marine populations, habitats and ecosystems following previous conservation efforts. This gives us the chance to produce specific evidence-based recommendations to scale fixed solutions globally with experience. ”

Duarte and his colleagues have looked at a wide and varied range of studies, reports and statistics to measure the health of the oceans, and found that half of the seabed species have experienced a significant decline in the past forty years.

They talk about nine basic components to form the basis of a rescue plan; salt marshes, sea rhizophoras, sea weeds, coral reefs, algae, oyster reefs, fishing, giant creatures and deep waters. Our researchers say that focusing on these should follow marine life.

If we do this correctly, it will benefit all of us – for example, salty marshes and sea grasses hold carbon in the atmosphere, while rhizophores (a type of tropical mangrove trees) may be the most effective barriers known to floods and waves.Scientists have prepared a 30-year plan to revive Marine Life
The team refers to previously successful conservation attempts to save species from elephant seals to green turtles, as proof that we have not yet lost the war when it comes to maintaining underwater ecosystems.

“Although mankind has largely destroyed the oceans, our recent initiatives have turned into important success stories,” explains Catherine Lovelock, a biologist at Queensland University of Australia.
“The world has previously come together to create whaling moratoriums, the Marine Law, prevent pollution from ships and limit industrial fishing – the name of positive results in all. Now for the oceans, it’s time to do more! ”

We can reclaim the abundance of sea creatures by 2050

The team also identified six “improvement steps” to focus on. These are respectively; protecting species, protecting areas, smart hunting, replacing habitats, reducing pollution and reducing the climate change – the most critical one.

According to the new plan, if we make all these steps work on a single plane at the same time, we can recover the abundance of sea creatures by 2050. The team emphasizes that this will require a lot of effort in terms of finance and international cooperation – but it is possible.
Researchers know that there is no specific reference point in the history of the oceans to base on this. However, they see that wild sea life can be re-enriched and expanded to support the growing human population.

These ecosystems nourish, support us, and even protect us from unknown viruses. If we do not act to guarantee the future of the world under the sea, we will not have a future very soon.

Finally, let’s listen to the marine scientist Susana Agusti from King Abdullah University Faculty of Science and Technology (KAUST); “Rebuilding marine life is challenging for humanity. But it represents a feasible task, an ethical obligation and a smart economic goal to achieve a sustainable future. ”
