World’s Largest Marine Reserve To Be Created!
Australia to create world’s largest marine reserve in the Coral Sea
The Australian government has announced plans to create the world’s largest marine nature reserve covering an area the size of Britain and France combined.
The proposed Coral Sea Commonwealth Marine Reserve will cover 989,842 square kilometres off the country’s northeast coast which stretches from the Great Barrier Reef to Papua New Guinea in the north and the Solomon Islands in the east.
Recent research shows the area is home to dozens of endangered species and remains one of the last places on the planet thriving with large predatory fish such as sharks and tuna.
