Our connection to Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument

The Marianas have a great opportunity before them. If the idea of a monument is denied we will be missing out on many different and exciting things. Like the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument in Hawaii, which covers 139,797 square miles of the Pacific Ocean, we can also have a protected marine life area. Their are many threats through our ecosystem and we want to prevent to protect our marine life. The monument in the Marianas can bring many educational opportunities for students and others interested in Marine life.
Their have been ups and downs with the Papahanaumokuakea Monument, but we are able to learn from their mistakes and maybe even become a better and improved monument area.
We can also obtain the many benefits that the Papahanaumokuakea Monument have by agreeing to have a monument up in the Northern Islands.
