Thanks Cal for posting the link to the article. Kudos to Mr. Ernesto Escobar, Senator Francisco ChahuŠn and Rapa Nui representatives for their actions..
"The establishment of a large marine reserve in Easter Islandís Exclusive Economic Zone would help protect the Provinceís waters while also ensuring that traditional Rapa Nui fishing practices remain not only possible, but also viable. A marine reserve would also help preserve the Easter Islandís unique and fragile oceanic biodiversity from illegal fishing activity. Now is the time to create a large marine reserve and help protect the waters of Easter Island and the local fishing practices of the Rapa Nui." -
Read and hopefully noted.
