Incredibly remote island creates world’s fourth largest marine sanctuary

In the South Atlantic Ocean lies one of the most remote islands in the world, Tristan da Cunha. The incredibly isolated British territory is partially famous because the recorded population of 245 people is thought to have all descended from just fifteen outside ancestors who arrived on the island at various dates between 1816 and 1908. That little fact, however, is not the focus of this particular story. Last week, the government of Tristan da Cunha announced that the 700,000 sq km of waters around will become a marine protected area (MPA), making it the fourth-largest such sanctuary in the world.
