In recognition of World Oceans Day (June 8), Pew’s Global Ocean Legacy campaign has launched an interactive map to spotlight some of the most important and unspoiled places in our seas.
Embark on a virtual journey—from the South Pacific to the North Atlantic—and see six ocean sites where Global Ocean Legacy has played or is playing a pivotal role in establishing marine reserves. The tool provides a rare insight into some of the largest and most fragile places in our oceans.
