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.

That's easy for you to say, @jeremie.


Seriously, that's pretty impressive and great news.
