Saving ocean life within a human generation is ‘largely achievable’ say scientists (sciencefocus)

The number of marine species threatened with global extinction has decreased from 18 per cent in 2000 to 11.4 per cent in 2019. Notable rebounds from the brink of extinction include humpback whales, which have increased from a few hundred animals to more than 40,000; and northern elephant seals, from just 20 breeding animals to more than 200,000 today. Scientists say the focus should be on rebuilding depleted wildlife populations and ecosystems, not simply on conserving what remains.
