New Caledonia protects 10% of its ocean ...
By Rainforest Trust - October 24, 2023
On October 18, New Caledonia’s government voted to highly protect 10% of the 1.3 million-square-kilometre (501,932-square-mile) Natural Park of the Coral Sea, which encompasses New Caledonia’s entire exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. These new reserves increase the portion of New Caledonia’s EEZ that is highly protected from 2.4% to 10%, and conserves habitat for sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales, and seabirds.
