Scientists propose polar protection plan—28 September 2015

International scientists, including researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED), have proposed a new pathway for saving the Arctic and Antarctic from environmental challenges. A new study from CEED proposes the world should tackle immediate threats like pollution, over-fishing and invasive species in both the northern and southern polar regions to boost their ability to withstand climate change.

Climate change remains the greatest threat to the Arctic and Antarctic—but there is much we can do right now to alleviate its impact on the polar regions,” says Dr Joseph Bennett of CEED and Carleton University, Canada.
