Arctic Explorer Pen Hadow Leads Creation of World’s Largest Wildlife Reserve #Protect90North
British explorer Pen Hadow (57) launches the #Protect90North campaign to create the world’s largest wildlife reserve for the international waters surrounding the North Pole. The reserve will become the refuge-of-last-resort, a refugium for the region’s existing wildlife and the rising number of species heading north to these, the planet’s coolest waters in an attempt to survive global ocean warming. The reserve’s science-only status, excepting military submarines, will prevent vessel-based commercial and exploitative activities from adding even more stresses on the region’s unique and super-vulnerable ecosystem.
