World Ocean Radio 5/8/24: Bio-Regional Thinking and the Deep Sea

Host: Peter Neill
Trisha Badger

Bio-regions on Earth are organized into types, then realms, and are further distinguished and mapped for planning, strategizing, developing, and as a tool for protection of the planet. A major trouble with bio-regional mapping is that it neglects nearly 83 percent of the ocean–beyond marine protected areas–leaving the high seas and deep sea unaddressed and vulnerable.
