Four Latin American countries create fishing-free corridors in the East Pacific

Four Latin American countries announced on Tuesday that they would expand and consolidate their marine protected areas to create a vast corridor in the Pacific Ocean, hoping to protect species such as sea turtles, tuna, squids and hammerhead sharks. .. The new ocean corridor connects the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador with Malpelo Island in Colombia, Cocos and Coiba in the waters of Costa Rica and Panama, and protects migratory birds from the fishing fleet of hundreds of ships visiting the East Pacific each year.
