The Libyan Minister of Agriculture has recently issued new demarcations to enlarge the perimeter of the 2 MPAs of Farwah and Ain El-Ghazalah proclaimed in January 2011. The new borders have been adopted following the recommendations of the General Director of the Marine Biology Research Center in Tajura.

Libya has been working on the identifying new marine and coastal areas to be protected along the Libyan coast with WWF Mediterranean in the framework of the MedPAN South project and with RAC/SPA in the framework of MedMPAnet project in strong collaboration with EGA, the Libyan Environmental General Authority.
