The proclamation that established Revillagigedo National Park (PNR), which is situated in the Pacific Ocean and referred to as “Mexico’s last frontier,” was released in the Official Journal of the Federation on November 27, 2017. Six years after it first made headlines in the mainstream media, the story is still significant for safeguarding our nation’s oceans.

Four islands make up the PNR archipelago: San Benedicto, Socorro, Roca Partida, and ClariĆ³n.

It is the largest marine protected area (MPA) in North America devoid of fishing, covering 14.8 million hectares of protected marine polygon. All forms of fishing, including recreational and industrial, are strictly forbidden within its waters.

Revillagigedo National Park is a special place in the world due to its abundance of natural resources. The species richness in the area, which ranges from endemic to those with transpacific and oceanic affinities, accounts for 13.2% of all fish species in Mexico and contains species that are unique to this region.
