While the ocean has suffered many losses and huge problems remain, important progress is being made in marine conservation. Examples include striking recoveries of once threatened species, increasing rates of protection of marine habitats, more sustainably managed fisheries and aquaculture, reductions in some forms of pollution, accelerating restoration of degraded habitats, and use of the ocean and its habitats to sequester carbon and provide clean energy. Many of these achievements have multiple benefits, including improved human well-being. A greater focus on solutions and successes will help them become the norm rather than the exception.
