Hope Spot - Gulf of Mexico Deep Reefs: preserve this biodiversity hotspot

About Hope Spot - Gulf of Mexico Deep Reefs: preserve this biodiversity hotspot
Along the continental shelf of the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 200 shelf-edge reefs and banks form a biodiversity hotspot. These deep reefs support an abundance of soft corals, subtropical and tropical invertebrates and more than 90 species of fish, including many large predators. The Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary provides protection to many of these species and habitats, but finding a balance between natural preservation and human uses (like commercial fishing and deepwater oil and gas mining) in the Gulf of Mexico has proven difficult to achieve.
About Mission Blue
Mission Blue is an initiative of the Sylvia Earle Alliance to ignite public support for the protection of Hope Spots through the creation of a global network of marine protected areas to safeguard 20% of the ocean by 2020.
