Benefits of a No-Take Marine Reserve to Sharks in the Chagos Archipelago
The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Officer launched a public consultation (10th November 2009 - 12th February 2010) on whether the Chagos Archipelagio/British Indian Ocean Territory and its surrounding waters should be protected. More info here.
The goal of this project was to compile a list of 100 actions that, if implemented, would have an immediate effect on slowing down biodiversity loss in G20 countries. The SSG was asked to contribute an action that (1) would contribute to the safeguard of a particular endangered species or ecosystem, (2) was politically costly to implement or opposed by some interest groups, (3) strongly and widely supported by peer-reviewed scientific evidence.
