GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
As 2020 winds down, the world has a new marine sanctuary, the largest in the Atlantic Ocean and the fourth-largest in the world. Centered around the South Atlantic's remote Tristan da Cunha archipelago, the new marine sanctuary "will protect tens of millions of native and migratory birds, rare migratory sharks, whales, seals, golden undersea forests of kelp, and penguins—collectively valued as a UNESCO World Heritage Site—from illegal mining, fishing, and other extractive activities." www.goodnewsnetwork.org/tristan-da-cunha-biggest-marine-protected-area/
