On June 5, Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) brought together over a hundred delegates to discuss how to secure an ambitious global deal to protect nature in the high seas. Held in the historic Navy Board Rooms in Somerset House, the event fell between the second and third BBNJ (Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction) negotiations at the United Nations and was kindly supported by DP World and The Ian Fleming Estate. The goal of the day was to better understand what is at stake for high seas biodiversity, elevate ambition for its conservation and also highlight the importance of these negotiations to achieve 30 per cent of ocean protected by 2030. BLUE launched its vision document on the protection of the high seas, authored by Professor Callum Roberts. You can download a copy here.
