Chile proposes a high seas MPA on the Salas and Gomez and Nazca ridges

With more than 41% of its waters already covered by marine protected areas (MPAs), Chile has proposed creating a high seas MPA on the Salas and Gomez and Nazca ridges. The idea was introduced by President Sebastián Piñera at the virtual climate summit held by US President Joe Biden in April. Piñera said “it’s not enough” to protect only national waters, especially considering the global call to protect 30 percent of the ocean by 2030.
