When was the first protected marine life area?

    Although governments around the world have been setting up protected marine areas for a long time (including the United States, which created the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act in 1972) there was no official oversight to the areas until Executive Order 13158 was signed on May 26, 2000, creating the first offical MPA’s that would be watched and regulated.

    I hope this helped!
