Conservation gains for marine environment in Asia

Posted on

China has announced a new policy which will place under protection by 2020 at least 30 per cent of the Bohai Sea – a core area within the important Yellow Sea ecoregion. This action will secure coastal wetlands and shellfish beds which serve as critically important stopover points for migratory birds. A trawling ban throughout Hong Kong’s waters came into effect at the beginning of 2013 – a measure WWF has been campaigning on to protect the secure marine environment which has been heavily degraded especially by damaging trawling methods.
