Collection: Oceans Sanctuaries: Esperanza at the Alboran Sea (Photos & Videos)

GP0STQXHE
Two thirds of the sea and ocean water (half of the planet in absolute terms) are international waters in which, surprisingly, there is no regulation on the protection for the biodiversity.

That is why, within the framework of the meeting on the oceans, from 10th to 21st of July hosted by the United Nations headquarters in New York, Greenpeace wants to underline the need to globally agree on a Treaty on the Oceans that promotes the creation of Marine Reserves, where the protection of the species that inhabit there is guaranteed.

For this reason, Greenpeace has travelled to the Sea of Alboran (South East of the Spanish coast) onboard the Esperanza.
This is a unique area because of the coexistence of Atlantic and Mediterranean species, that the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity is in the process of declaring EBSA (Areas of Significance of ecological or biological importance). However, this sea, bordered by the Strait of Gibraltar and the imaginary axis of a Cabo de Gata (Almería) with Oran (Algeria), is threatened by, among other things, the heavy marine traffic around the Strait of Gibraltar, where about 100,000 ships circulate every year.
