Huge Marine Sanctuary Recently Created In Pacific Ocean

http://www.enn.com/ecosystems/article/48370

After so many articles detailing how ocean pollution is killing marine life, its nice to see an article about a marine sanctuary being created. The sanctuary, based around a small group of island called the Pitcairn islands, controlled by the British. The sanctuary itself is about three times the size of the U.K. While this may not undo the damage done to the ocean by pollution, it at least gives a safe zone for many marine species to survive in.
