The Benefits of Marine Protected Areas

 (Photo from "Save Green Sea Turtles")
Marine Protected Areas (MPA) around the world are showing what a little environmental stewardship can do!
MPAs are government or NGO regulated areas in tropical waters and coastal seas around the world that restrict human activity, providing a safe haven for all types of oceanic wildlife. As study last month showed, MPAs provide a safe habitat for many (more than was expected) sea turtles to forage and travel to their breeding grounds.
Are MPAs a good idea or What!?!
