UN wildlife summit agrees steps to protect homes for whales and dolphins

A major United Nation’s wildlife summit has agreed on steps to reduce threats to whales and dolphins around the world by identifying areas where they live, feed and breed.

The 130 nation members attending the 12th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) meeting in Manila adopted the landmark resolution agreeing to help with the identification of areas in the ocean that are important to whales and dolphins.

These areas can then be used to manage human activities within them, such as fishing or oil and gas exploration, eventually leading to the creation of marine protected areas (MPAs) and other conservation measures that will help reduce man-made threats that whales and dolphins face each day.
