Niue | Small Pacific island nation sets aside 40% of its ocean area as MPA

Although small in size, the island of Niue made big waves on Friday at the Our Ocean conference in Malta with its announcement to turn 40 percent of its exclusive economic zone into a marine park.


Niue, which has a population of roughly 1,600, lays claim to vast tracts of ocean due to its remote location about 2,400 kilometers (about 1,500 miles) northeast of New Zealand.
