The story of major conservation achievements over the last decade in three World Heritage marine sites-Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles, iSimangaliso Wetland Park in South Africa and Glacier Bay in Canada/USA. At the end of the film, Ms. Bündchen invites the international community to join her in championing Marine World Heritage and to work together to ensure the protection of marine sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Despite the successes highlighted in the film, still a third of all marine World Heritage sites have unsustainable fisheries practices and face many challenges inherent to multi-use marine areas. Coastal development, maritime pollution and climate change all substantially increase the threats these critical sites are facing.
