See how marine reserves work - get animated about this post!

A Google Earth tour developed by the Partnership for Disciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans’ (PISCO) Science of Marine Reserves Project allows us to dive underwater to see how full protection inside marine reserves has led to benefits at sites around the world. Data collected by scientists shows that organisms can increase in both number and size when they are protected inside marine reserves
