Gabon continues conservation leadership with Underwater Reserve!!

This month, Gabon continued its conservation leadership by announcing an underwater protected area covering close to a quarter of the country’s exclusive economic zone. ┬áPresident Bongo announced the designation at the IUCN World Parks Conference in Sydney, Australia. ┬áThe protected area will exclude commercial fishing, and provide enhanced protection to many marine species, including leatherback turtles, whale sharks, and whales. ┬áNational Geographic posted a write-up of the announcement here.
