Australia has created the world’s largest network of marine reserves and will restrict fishing and oil and gas exploration in a major step to safeguard the environment and access to food.

The area will cover 3.1 million square kilometres (1.2 million square miles) of ocean including the entire Coral Sea, and encompass a third of the island continent’s territorial waters.’

    Please let me know before using my image:-)

    It is OK but I am just sending out invoices for image theft and copyright breaches.

    Thanks for caring about the environment and at least crediting me !!!

    Cheers Doug Steley
