More Bush Hostility To Nature In Evidence
WASHINGTON -- The world's largest protected marine area is being created around the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.
The archipelago is 1,400 miles long and 100 miles wide.
It's home to rare marine mammals, fishes and birds.
On Thursday, President George W. Bush is to announce his decision to create the nation's newest national monument. It covers the vast chain of largely uninhabited islands, atolls, coral reef colonies and seamounts.
