Biologist Jonathan Gardner discusses marine reserves around the world – their importance as ecosystems, and the competing interests that threaten or help protect them.

Conservation, fishing, social, and economic sectors all affect the management of marine areas internationally. Can these sectors work together? What is their impact on these environments, which are so important for protecting biodiversity and resources?
