What's amazing to me is how clear the water is in the photos. Reminds me of Hawaiian waters 30 years ago.

How are the archaeologists and scientists ensuring the protections for the pristine environment and shy and endangered wildlife species of these archipelagos? I was once a scientist working for the protection of these marine ecosystems and am curious as to how such expeditions will affect these delicate and otherwise long untouched islands.

Why was it necessary to make this place a monument? The Gledstane wreck and all of the other work could have been conducted without creating a monument to make it a reserve only for scientists. It was available to all (with proper restrictions and regulations already in place) and now it's not. Scientists have already been sanctioned for not following monument rules and regulations.

That's because 2 million people don't live there.
