2016 begins with the creation of the largest marine reserve in the Atlantic Ocean

The waters around Ascension Island, a tiny British island territory in the South Atlantic, are soon to become a marine reserve almost the size of the UK. This will protect the island’s exceptional marine biodiversity, including one of the largest populations of green turtles, important tropical seabird colonies (including the unique Ascension frigate bird), and some of the biggest marlin in the world. Please help us to spread the good news!
