Australia set to establish world’s largest network of marine reserves

Australia is set to establish the worlds largest network of marine reserves, covering over one third of Australian waters, in an effort to protect the ocean life found there. Oil and gas exploration will be curbed, especially off Australia’s western coast and along the Coral Reef off the counry’s northeastern coastline.

The Irish Times article on this development can be accessed in full here.

Phys.org also have an article on this with a map of the marine network proposa, which can be accessed here.
