US Marine Protected Zone Expansion Could Double World Reserves

Date: 1/7/2014

The US plans to create the world’s biggest marine protected area (MPA) in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
The White House will extend an existing protected area, known as the
Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument. Fishing and drilling
would be banned from an area that could eventually cover two million sq
km. The extended zone would double the world’s fully protected marine
reserves.
