Mexico creates huge national park to protect marine life

A national park to protect marine life in Mexico installed

The Mexican government has created an oversized marine reserve around a gaggle of islands home to many species as well as rays, whales and ocean turtles. Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto designated on Friday the Revillagigedo land, situated some 390 kilometres (242 miles) southeast of the Lower California peninsula, as a national parkland.

This four volcanic island is the home to hundreds of species of animals and plants, which includes the rays, humpback whales, sea turtles, lizards and migratory birds.

Why is the reservation made?

Wildlife conservation is the plan to defend vulnerable animal and plant species, in conjunction with their natural environment. We know the fact that many of the species are in danger zone which is a very bad thing for the earth.

When a species ends, it not only affects that particular individual but it also affects human beings and all other existing species as there is a breakage of the food chain. It means that when a species ends, it means that we are nearing towards the end of the world. Hence this decision that is taken by the Mexican will make a good impact.
