Pollutant Water: Palau clears a vast Pacific Ocean Conservation Area Environment
Palau's miniscule West Pacific Islands have authorised the establishment of a sea reserve twice the scale of Mexico. Nature protectionists said the 500,000 square kilometres (193,000 square miles) reserve would be the 6th biggest fully conservation area in the planet - which means no fisheries or other uses such as exploration for petroleum - if it were to be officially endorsed by the Palau Presidential Council on Monday as anticipated.
The Palau Nacional Convention passed the Palau Nacional Navy Sanctuary Act on Thursday, which will designate 80% of the country's naval land as a reservation. This move follows a series of warnings about new sea reserves in Chile, New Zealand and the UK to prevent large parts of the ocean from over-fishing.
U.S.-based Pew Charitable Trusts said Palau's new reserve has increased the overall area of the world' s oceans to 1.9%, although researchers say that this number should be 30% to preserve fishery resources and the state' s public safety. "Today is an historical date for Palau that proves that a small islander can have a big influence on the sea," said the country's chairman, Tommy E Remengesau Jr.
Approximately 20% of the reserve will still be open to community fishing. Pew, who sponsored the Shrine, said that there are more than 1,300 kinds of fishing and 700 kinds of corals around Palaus several hundred small islets. "Seth Horstmeyer, the organization's Global Oceans Legacy Principal, said, "The establishment of this reserve preserves one of the most dramatic marine environment on Earth.
