Marine Park

"A marine park is a park consisting of an area of sea (or lake) sometimes protected for recreational use, but more often set aside to preserve a specific habitat and ensure the ecosystem is sustained for the organisms that exist there. Most marine parks are designated by governments, and organized like watery national parks.
Some marine parks are quite large; the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park in Australia is the largest, at 350,000 km."
