Updating what we know about ocean acidification and key global challenges

It is amazing to think that just ten years ago hardly anyone had heard of ocean acidification. It is now much more widely understood that the increasing amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) we are emitting into the air by our activities is reacting with the ocean to alter its chemistry and push it along the scale towards acidity and is, amongst other effects, reducing the availability of carbonate ions needed by many marine animals and plants to build their shells and skeletons. …

These supplementary marine guidelines are therefore aimed at ensuring that the IUCN categories can be effectively applied to all types of MPAs, as well as to any marine components of adjoining terrestrial protected areas, provided a site meets the IUCN definition of a protected area. …
