Ocean Conservation
The ocean is the world's largest sink of carbon and source of oxygen. It regulats the global climate. It’s is the cradle of life, the origin of terrestrial ecosystems. It is an important resource for human development, which affords cou...

The 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which has been postponed for a year due to the pandemic, is taking place in Glasgow, Scotland. Although the ocean is not the main topic of the conference, the outcome of the conference will determine the future of the ocean. The polar oceans are the fastest warming region and are a consistent focus of the Blue Pulse. Most sections in this issue discuss changes and conservation of the polar oceans under climate change and can be used as a reference for understanding the links between oceans and climate.


Lots of marine protecting problems brought forward in the COP 15 that just ended. In this issue, we focus on these problems. Meanwhile, in the interpretations section, we present the introduction of the Ross Sea large-scale marine protected aera which created by CCAMLR.


How to accurately define marine protected areas is a controversial issue in marine conservation and management. Issue 36 focuses on marine protected areas, the academic panel introduces a classification method to evaluate protected areas in terms of the level of implementation based on objective facts, which provides new insight for scientific marine conservation.


Regulation is the permanent keyword of marine conservation and governance. Issue 35 focuses on regulation, presenting suggestions, critiques, and case studies from society and academia on government regulation in terms of regulation approach, regulation intensity, and regulatory decision-making.


Has the future of the ocean been determined? Our answer is: Not yet. Issue 34 brings a lot of good news about ocean conservation: more targeted government policies for ocean protection, new technologies to mitigate pollution, more sustainable aquaculture practices, new approaches to ocean conservation, and researchers’ deeper understanding of the environment.


The recently released Climate Change 2021: the Physical Science Basis explains the impact of climate change on the environment. As an important part of the Earth’s ecosystem, the ocean is also a focus of attention in the field of global climate governance. Issue 33 introduces topics related to climate change that can provide experience and guidance for ocean governance and protection of marine life.
