Dead Zones Can Be Reversed
Low oxygen Dead Zones are a global threat to livelihoods and are increasing in the coastal areas of the world, due to pollution from agriculture, untreated sewage and dumping. Experts say that restoring Dead Zones is increasingly achievable, to recover the ecosystem services provided to people from healthy coastal waters, but the prevention of Dead Zones is still better than cure.
