For once, sea life has the right of way. This month, a groundbreaking agreement between Ecuador, Colombia and Costa Rica made headway in protecting some of the most biodiverse ocean waters on Earth. The agreement acknowledged that habitats do not conform to political boundaries. The three nations exchanged nautical charts and knowledge — and created massive natural reserves according to the movements of marine life across national waters. Increasingly, we are recognizing that there are natural corridors and highways that don’t conform to our man-made ones — and bending accordingly.
