Hope Spot - Tasman Sea: protect endangered species

About Hope Spot - Tasman Sea: protect endangered species
The Tasman Sea is an area of the southern Pacific Ocean between Australia and New Zealand spanning approximately 2,000 km across and extending 2,800 km from north to south. The Tasman Sea has been identified as one of five global ocean warming “hotspots.” Temperatures here have risen by 2ºC over the past 60 years—three times the average rate of warming in the world’s oceans. The vulnerable Antipodean Albatross and at least five other species of threatened seabirds forage in the Tasman. There is virtually no continental shelf associated with the Tasman Sea; where shelf-edge fronts occur, they are essentially the landward boundaries in both Australia and New Zealand. High levels of biodiversity are associated with the area’s seamounts. Significant islands are Lord Howe Island, Ball’s Pyramid, Middleton Reef, and Norfolk Island.
