Palau President urges senators to get behind his marine sanctuary strategy

Updated 3 November 2014, 11:37 AEDT

The President of Palau's great mission to turn his country's entire EE-Z, its exclusive economic zone, into a protected marine reserve has moved a step closer to becoming a reality.

Tommy Remengesau Junior has delivered his revised Marine Sanctuary Bill with a message urging senators to support his efforts to finalise the creation of the sanctuary.

And Bernadette Carreon in Koror says, with no sign of any strong objections to the President's plan, it's likely to be law quite soon.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Bernadette Carreon, journalist, Palau
