    Australia to create world's largest marine reserve

    Australia says it will create the world's largest network of marine parks ahead of the Rio+20 summit.
    The reserves will cover 3.1 million sq km of ocean, including the Coral Sea.
    Restrictions will be placed on fishing and oil and gas exploration in the protected zone covering more than a third of Australia's waters.

    Re: Australia to create world's largest marine reserve

    Some have also noted that oil and gas exploration continue to be allowed near some protected areas, particularly off Western Australia.
    This beautiful area {The North West Coast} I have sailed.
    The coast & hinterland I have "explored."
    Isolated it is...
    Protection is sorely needed from exploitation.

    It is about time we started taking care of the oceans.

    No, it is past time that we started taking care of the oceans. With blue fin tuna having radiation levels that were ten times the norm found on the California coast recently, the BP oil spill a couple years ago, not to mention the spill in Alberta that has yet to be contained and has had little press coverage (Spill sends 22,000 barrels of oil mix into Alberta muskeg - The Globe and Mail).

    Sad that we were ignorant enough to hold the Bomb tests in that part of the world. Now some of the most important ocean waters will set off Geiger counters for hundreds of thousands of years. Mankind is not so smart as he thinks.
