Nice to hear so many naval ships in town they rarely venture to the Pacific as they are so busy rounding up bedraggled refugees north of the nation which sort of leaves the Pacific waters round this side pretty well up for grabs. There are many tiny islands in the Pacific important to the fish and wildlife population sort of feel endangered from stealth. 
The Spratly Islands are a major fish breeding ground forming a strand around the string of islands that is the Philippines. They currently deal with oil spills and garbage as they also lie on a major shipping lane. A lot of nations have an interest in controlling this tiny pristine group of islands which are in dire need of protection from any kind of development, some are already partly degraded but can be salvaged. They provide, like the numerous atolls in the Pacific vital breeding grounds for fish and the matrix of life that is the Pacific and the globe. We all depend on the sea for food and diversity in fish and animals for now and the future so that is why this area needs conservation urgently and a peaceful outcome. All Pacific rim nations have an interest in a clean food rich protected and peaceful Pacific including Korea, Japan Vietnam China and Mexico to name a few. We only have one planet. Mars is just not a beautiful or workable option!
There is a terriblel gyre of largely discarded plastics and oil spills resembling a thick soup in the middle of the Pacific Ocean which with a global effort could be begun to be swept clean already somebody has designed a vessel for that job. Birds and fish feeding in that area ingest the toxic detritus and this deadly concoction then becomes a horrible addition to Planet Earth's food chain. Without protection, with all it's beauty and bounty a gift given to us in our care, Planet Earth will die.
