Green (Living) Review
MAY 23, 2012
On the UN International Day for Biological Diversity, The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) calls for a greater awareness of the threats to marine biodiversity as without life in the ocean there would be no life on Earth. The Convention on Biological Diversity has established a target of 10 percent of all coastal and marine waters being protected in reserves by 2020.
