This marine park will triple in size

This is huge for world ocean protection: Australian Environment Minister, Tanya Plibersek, just announced that the Macquarie Island Marine Park will triple in size! This will place an extra 385,000 km2 of Australia’s oceans under high protection, as this area will be completely closed to fishing, mining and other extractive activities.
Macquarie Island is home to species such as the endemic royal penguin, rockhopper penguin, subantarctic fur seal, southern elephant seal, black-browed albatross and the grey petrel.

β€œAustralians understand that the health of our nation is bound up with the health of our natural world. As Minister for the Environment, I am determined to protect more of what’s precious, to repair more of what’s damaged, and to manage nature better for the future.”, said Tanya Plibersek.
