Our goal is to work with the Government of Bermuda, non-government organizations, and scientists to establish a very large, no-take marine reserve to protect the Sargasso Sea within Bermuda's waters.
Protection on this scale would:
- ensure that the Sargasso Sea and its important marine life is safeguarded;
- provide an important contribution to the internationally agreed target to protect 10 percent of the world’s seas; and
- demonstrate Bermuda’s role as a world leader in ocean conservation and its place as a world-class destination for tourism and scientific research.
Global Ocean Legacy, a project of Pew and its partners, aims to establish a worldwide system of very large, highly protected marine reserves where fishing and other extractive activities are protected. We work with local citizens, governments and scientists around the world to protect and conserve some of the Earth’s most important and unspoiled marine environments.
