Article alert: More than protected areas needed to stop biodiversity loss
28.11.2011

Science for Environment Policy, Issue 26

One strategy to halt the loss of biodiversity has been to create protected areas in the sea and on land. However, a new study suggests that unless additional measures are taken, particularly those that tackle human population growth and the increased use of natural resources, even the development of new protected areas will be unable to reverse the trend of global biodiversity loss.
