Palau Creates National Marine Sanctuary

WASHINGTON - Earthjustice applauds the creation of the Palau National Marine Sanctuary, signed into law today by President Tommy Remengesau, establishing one of the world’s largest marine protected areas.

“This bold action to protect the full sweep of the country’s valuable ocean resources affirms that Palau is a world leader in marine conservation,” said Drew Caputo, Earthjustice Vice President of Litigation for Lands, Wildlife and Oceans. “No other country has done more.”
