Kerry Supports Creation of Antarctic MPA
Calling himself a “child of the ocean,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry voiced his strong support for the creation of a marine protected area (MPA) in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. Kerry emphasized the environmental and economic value of the Ross Sea and all the world’s oceans.

“We call this beautiful planet Earth, but it could well have been called Ocean,” he said.

Discussion Ideas:

How do students think an MPA in the Ross Sea would impact each of the stakeholders?

Note: We’re experimenting with a new feature here on the NG Education Blog. “Current Event Connection” posts will connect educators with news stories and relevant discussion ideas featuring content from the NG Education website.
