Deciding where to create marine reserves can be tricky when there are so many species and habitats in need of protection, and lots of other uses for marine areas such as fishing and recreation.
Thankfully, scientists have developed core principles for efficient reserve design, which weigh up the needs of marine animals and plants, with those of other users. This animation explains the use of the CARE approach to design marine reserves that are well connected, adequate for species, representative of all species and are efficient (cost the least to implement).
