Ginormous marine protected area via tiny nation of Kiribati
February 22 2008 | Jim's Blog,
The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati has done something wonderful, something amazing... they have established the world’s largest marine protected area.
It's probably no surprise that fisheries all over the world are under siege and even collapsing.
Thus every action in the direction of establishing marine protected areas should be applauded. It's particularly noteworthy when an island nation has the foresight to understand the need to act and protect the marine areas around them.
