An event organised by the National Museum of Natural History, with Julien Rochette.

Since the middle of the 20th century, human activities on the high seas have continued to increase and threats to their ecosystems and species have increased. Called "high seas" or "international waters", marine areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ) cover almost half of the planet. What do these spaces represent? How are they managed and by whom? Are they threatened? These are all questions to be discussed at this meeting.

Round table moderated by Andréa Rigal-Casta, environmental law lawyer and founder of the law firm Géo Avocats.

  • Cédric Cotté, Oceanographer and ecologist, specialist in marine predators (mammals - birds) and their prey in the Southern Ocean
  • Cédric Marteau, Director of the French Southern Lands Nature Reserve (TAAF) and Director of Natural Heritage Conservation of the TAAF
  • Julien Rochette, Director of the Ocean Programme at the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI)
