Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument to be extended

3 posts in this topic

It will be come the largest protected area on earth, 3,5 times bigger than California, 3 times larger than France.

The current protected area will be enlarged to quadruple the Hawaian monument.

 

It is expected to help the tuna fisheries to recover.

 

There is an urgent need to create marine protected areas. 15% of lands and under protection, but only 2% of oceans are protected.
