Coalition Asks Biden To Dramatically Expand Marine Monument In Remote Pacific

News Release from Pacific Remote Islands Coalition, June 1, 2022

We are proud to announce that today, Indigenous leaders from the Pacific Remote Islands Coalition sent an official request to the White House, asking President Joe Biden to use his authority to expand protection of the waters around the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument (PRIMNM). Made up of cultural practitioners, scientists, conservationists, fishers, and community members, the Coalition is working together toward protecting the precious ocean waters of the PRI.

The proposed expansion would extend the monument around two sets of islands and atolls from 50 to 200 nautical miles, the full extent of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), making the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument the largest highly protected marine protected area (MPA) in the world.

You can learn more about the Pacific Remote Island Coalition, join the request to the President, and sign the petition at

CB: Coalition Asks Biden To Dramatically Expand Marine Monument In Remote Pacific  -- Such a move would grow the protected area, which currently covers just under 500,000 square miles in the central Pacific, to some 755,000 total square miles in five different areas across the region. It would well surpass the size of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, which was the world’s largest protected area when President Barack Obama expanded it in 2016.
