IPSO reports mass ocean extinction within generations

On Tuesday, June 21, 2011, Reuters published a study led by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) regarding mass extinctions in the world’s oceans.

 

The study reports on mass extinctions within a generation, and includes information about the collapsing of coral reefs and the spread of low-oxygen “dead zones”.

 

“We now face losing marine species and entire marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, within a single generation,” according to the study by 27 experts to be presented to the United Nations.
