12 NEWS THURSDAY JULY 16 2020 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Academics join bid to save planet CHARLES Darwin University researchers have contributed to an international call for 30 per cent of the planet to be protected to address the alarming collapse of the natural world. Professor Stephen Garnett and Associate Professor Kerstin Zander have lent their voices and research to a huge collective effort to inform the most comprehensive report to date on the economic implications of protecting nature. The report, which brought together more than 100 economists and scientists, found that the global economy would benefit from the establishment of far more protected areas on land and at sea than exist today. The study considered various scenarios for protecting at least 30 per cent of the worlds land and ocean to find that the benefits outweighed the costs by a ratio of at least 5-to-1. The research measured the financial impacts of protected areas on the global economy and non-monetary benefits such as ecosystem services, including climate change mitigation, flood protection and soil conservation.
