Mexico Creates a Huge Marine Park

The Mexican government has created a large marine reserve around a group of islands home to hundreds of species including rays, whales and sea turtles.  The Revillagigedo Archipelago is a group of volcanic islands off the country's south-west coast.

With a protection zone of 57,000 square miles (150,000km), it has become the largest ocean reserve in North America.

The move will mean all fishing activity will be banned, and the area will be patrolled by the navy.

This is good for the fish and for Mexico - as a country that has a huge tourist industry, this helps secure its future.  This BBC article, with great pictures of manta's (my favourite), is worth reading.

Well done Mexico
