Want to sponsor an ocean? The island of Niue has declared all its waters a marine park

For over 1,000 years, the people of Niue have lived in harmony with the vast ocean around them, passing knowledge of its secrets from parent to child, generation to generation. Now, they are stepping up to defend it. Niue has already declared all its territorial waters a marine park and demarcated massive no-fish zones. But its area of ocean is the size of Vietnam – and the island has less than 2,000 people! It needs more resources to make this work in practice. Now you can help them by spreading the word and donating to help conservation! Under the plan, which was being launched by Niue's Premier Dalton Tagelagi on Tuesday in New York, individuals or companies can pay $148 (€139) to protect 1 square kilometre of ocean from threats such as illegal fishing and plastic waste for a period of 20 years. Niue hopes to raise more than $18 million (€17 million) from the scheme by selling 127,000 square-kilometre units, representing the 40 per cent of its waters that form a no-take marine protected area. https://www.euronews.com/green/2023/09/20/want-to-sponsor-an-ocean-this-tiny-island-nation-has-come-up-with-a-novel-conservation-pla This text is copied from Sumofus.org and the article in the link.

    This is a great initiative by Niue to protect its waters and marine life. It's important for more resources to be allocated to support their efforts in preserving the ocean.

          Protecting such a vast ocean area demonstrates a strong commitment to conservation and sets a precedent for other nations.
