The Mexican government announced its plans to create the largest Marine Protected Area in North America. The Marine Protected Area will encompass the Revillagigedo Islands off the western coast of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean. The plans were announced on October 5, in Malta, by Mexico's National Commission of Protected Areas, Alejandro Del Mazo Maza. The plans will expand on an already present marine park surrounding the Revillagigedo Islands. The current marine park only protects marine animals six miles off shore.
The new Marine Protected Area will provide coverage for 57,000 square miles and all four Revillagigedo Islands. The islands were given the status of a World Heritage Site in 2016 for their biodiversity. Enric Sala, a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence said, "This is the wildest place in tropical North America. It’s one of the places where you can see the most giant manta rays and sharks on the planet."
