Obama expands Hawaii marine reserve to double the size of Texas

President Barack Obama will issue a proclamation to expand the existing Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM), off the coast of Hawaii, to four times its current size.

The move is intended to protect animal and plant life as well as the world's deepest and northernmost coral reefs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nlpDHSJ06o ...
