Giant marine reserve created in the South Pacific
This initiative was announced by Kiribati President Anote Tong at the Eighth UN Conference on the Convention on Biological Diversity in Curitiba, Brazil. "If the coral and reefs are protected, then the fish will grow and bring us benefit," the president said. "In this way all species of fish can be protected so none become depleted or extinct."
Because of the new designation, the region will be closed to commercial fishing. However, what I'm looking forward to hearing is whether the region will be open to recreational diving.
