Today is the final day of the United Nations BBNJ meeting, and the DSCC has been working long hours to ensure that the working group makes strong recommendations to the UN General Assembly.  We hope that these recommendations would push the GA enough to take further action to protect deep-sea biodiversity on the high seas.  The GA will meet in September to review its past resolutions.

More news to come on the outcome!
