Tiny Pacific Islands Create World's Largest Marine Park

The world’s largest marine park will soon be created in the Cook Islands located in the Pacific Ocean over 1,800 miles from New Zealand. Covering an area of more than 400,000 square miles, the park will be three times the size of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and twice as large as the Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean that topped the list of marine protected areas for two years. The nation’s 15 islands have a combined land mass barely larger than Washington DC, but its waters include environmentally valuable coral reefs, seagrass beds and fisheries.
