Since 2006, The Pew Charitable Trusts Global Ocean Legacy project has worked with indigenous groups, community leaders, government officials, scientists and other organizations to help protect the ocean; a part of the planet that is key to some island cultures and marine life. The Global Ocean Legacy campaign has aided in the creation of nine major marine reserves: Palau, Chagos, Coral Sea, Marianas Trench, Pacific Remote Islands, Easter Island, Pitcairn, Kermadecs, and Papahānumokuākea.
To date, Global Ocean Legacy has helped safeguard more than 2.4 million square miles of ocean. For more about the Global Ocean Legacy project please visit, globaloceanlegacy.org.
