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.
