Historic treaty to protect the oceans.

After 15 years of stalled talks, more than 100 countries reached a historic
agreement to protect the high seas on Saturday, a long-awaited step that
environmental groups say will help reverse marine biodiversity losses from
climate change and overfishing.

The legally binding UN treaty to conserve
and ensure the sustainable use of ocean biodiversity was finally agreed on
after five rounds of protracted UN-led negotiations that ended on Saturday,
a day after the original deadline. “The ship has reached the shore,”
said the UN conference’s president Rena Lee, after a marathon final stretch
of talks hit 38 hours.
