Global Ocean Legacy

La Isla de Pascua es un “territorio especial” de Chile y está ubicada al sudeste del Océano Pacífico, aproximadamente a 4.000 kilómetros (2.500 millas) al oeste del territorio continental chileno. Se sabe que las aguas de la provincia de la Isla de Pascua, en gran parte aún sin explorar, contienen puntos geológicos calientes y áreas de rara biodiversidad. Allí es posible encontrar especies de peces altamente migratorios y montes submarinos de entre 8,4  y 13,1 millones de años de antigüedad. 

Pew está trabajando con la comunidad indígena rapanui de Isla de Pascua y el Gobierno chileno para crear una gran reserva marina completamente protegida en estas aguas de tanto interés geológico. Si finalmente se designa, la reserva sería una de las más grandes de su clase en el mundo y permitiría salvaguardar el ecosistema oceánico único de la isla y las prácticas de pesca tradicionales de los rapanui.

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.

Our Blue Planet–Protecting the Ocean

Episode 6

Three-quarters of our planet is covered with water—and it’s this water that sustains life. But our liquid planet, home to half of the world’s known creatures and plants, is facing multiple threats, such as overfishing and commercial development. That’s why leading scientists say that 30 percent of our oceans should be protected. Host Dan LeDuc explores why this 30 percent data point is important with two people committed to safeguarding the oceans: native Hawaiian Sol Kaho’ohalahala, whose culture and livelihood depend on sustainable seas; and Matt Rand, who directs the Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy Project and has been working with people like Kaho’ohalahala since 2006 to keep our oceans healthy.
