Fanny Douvere, the coordinator of World Heritage Marine Programme, named the sequence of commitments for ocean sustainability ‘the rising tide of progress’. Here are the good news, you might have missed. 

For the fourth time, Our Ocean conference gathered government, nonprofit and business leaders to accelerate the conservation progress in marine World Heritage sites. As a result, several news make the hearts of environmentalists around the world fill with content. 

The Mexican government agreed to the expansion of the no-take zone around the Archipiélago de Revillagigedo, which was approved for the inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List last year. The government of Belize is also taking a stand for protection of marine heritage, with the new legislation, which will bring Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System one step closer to removal from the list of World Heritage in Danger. 

Hopefully, the Marine World Heritage Programme can achieve similar prominent results at the 23rd session of COP 23, taking place from 6th to 17th of November in Germany.
