Bermuda - Action alert!


Quick quick.

This is great
Bermuda is pondering the establishment of the Atlantic's biggest marine reserve in its offshore waters, and is soliciting comments.
Great overview here.

Please do this
  • Open the link here

  • Answer Yes to the first Question

  • Choose OPTION 1 (Protect three quarters (3/4) of our Exclusive Economic Zone) in Question # 2

  • Copy/Paste this into Question # 3: "If we made the marine reserve from 50 miles to 200 miles then the new Marine Reserve would be larger than the Great Barrier Reef, and there is considerable evidence to suggest that the tourism benefits would increase significantly without any impact on current fishing or recreational practice." - and then add whatever you want to say about why you are in favor of large MPAs.

  • Done! :)
Please, just do that.
Do not post verbose platitudes, or philosophical reflections about humankind or greed or whatever the latest fad may be. Any polite comments pertaining to the matter at hand will be useful - the others may even be harmful.

Thank you!
