Last wild places under threat

The oceans’ last wild places are no longer protected by their remoteness. The world’s fishing fleets can now venture almost anywhere including the waters around Antarctica. Thankfully, some remote places are being protected as marine reserves. President Obama declared a vast reserve around the Pacific Remote Islands last year and George Osborne, the British Chancellor of the Exchequer, this year announced the intention to create the world’s largest continuous reserve around Pitcairn in the Pacific. Marine reserves are also needed to protect waters nearer to where most people live.
