Why is marine conservation important?
The ocean Inhabits 230,000 known species of fish in the sea and numerous mountains and volcanoes . Only a tiny portion of this is protected under the marine conservation zones.
The ocean covers 70% of the earths surface but 95% of it is unmapped! Whilst it is claimed 12 men have walked on the moon only 2 have reached the deepest part of the ocean (the Mariana trench). It has been said more is known about the surface of the moon than under the sea.
