Mega Marine Protection (20) More files...
On November 2nd, 2021 at the UN Climate Change Summit (COP26), Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, and Costa Rica inaugurated a new environmental protection zone spanning the maritime territories of each country. According to its members, the Eastern Tropical Pacific Maritime Corridor (CMAR) will create fishing-free zones covering 500,000 square miles of the Pacific Ocean in one of the world’s most important migratory routes for sea turtles, whales, sharks and rays.

The expansion creates a “safe swimway” connecting Ecuadorian with Costa Rican waters where industrial fishing is banned in waters where important endangered migratory species, such as sharks, whales, turtles and manta rays travel. President Guillermo Lasso of Ecuador highlighted the increase in industrial fishing as an important catalyst for the agreement, noting the threat that overfishing poses to marine ecosystems
