USA TODAY – Wording on the High Seas Treaty agreement was reached Saturday at the United Nations in New York City after a marathon 38 hours of talks. The negotiations began in 2004. The landmark treaty, which has not yet been ratified, aims to put 30% of the world’s ocean area into protected areas to preserve marine life and allow it to recuperate. More than 8% of marine species are now on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List, meaning they’re threatened or endangered. That includes some species of whales, dolphins, manatees, tuna, basking sharks and turtles.
