President Barack Obama announced new executive orders Tuesday to make huge swaths of the Pacific Ocean off limits to fishing, energy exploration and other economic activities.
The move would create the world’s largest marine sanctuary, and is part of a broader push to tackle global warming and halt offshore energy development. This effort will be led by Secretary of State John Kerry and White House adviser John Podesta.
Obama’s new executive orders would expand the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument from 87,000 square miles to 782,000 square miles. All the waters being put off-limits would are located near U.S.-controlled islands and atolls, and the designation includes waters up to 200 nautical miles within U.S. holdings.
