The 50 residents of Pitcairn Island have all unanimously voted to call for a fully protected marine reserve in their waters. If declared by the British government, it would be the largest marine reserve in the world at more than 830,000 square kilometres. The islanders hope a marine reserve will attract tourists and scientists to their islands and leave a global legacy of ocean protection.
