Phoenix Islands Protected Area (PIPA)

Multiple-Use Marine Protected Area declared in 2006 and a World Heritage Marine Area inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2010. The Phoenix Islands Protected Area Management Plan (2010-2014), including a zoning map, was published in 2009; technical assistance provided by the New England Aquarium and Conservation International. PIPA comprises about 11% of the EEZ of Kiribati.

Updates will be posted on this website as MSP activities in Kiribati develop.
