A significant contribution to marine conservation has recently been made by the government and community of Tristan da Cunha, an inhabited island in the south Atlantic and part of the UK’s overseas territories. In an effort to safeguard the area’s marine wildlife, bottom-trawling, mining and any other harmful activities have been banned from these waters.

As the race continues to create a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine, concerns have been raised about the impact this could have on deep-sea shark populations.
