    The oceans, polar regions, cyberspace and outer space are no longer empty places, they are places where international law is evolving and innovating to regulate in areas beyond national jurisdiction. Evolving technological capabilities and burgeoning human population are pushing the reach of human activities beyond land and near-coastal areas.   The protection of such large areas of the ocean cannot be achieved without incorporating parts of the high seas into that well-connected MPA network. In spite of the urgent need to protect more of the ocean, States have no mechanisms to create comprehensive, globally recognized MPAs and reserves on the high seas.
