The United States and partner countries were to announce new marine reserves on Monday at the start of a major conference in Chile on protecting the world's oceans. Chile is hosting the Our Ocean conference in the picturesque Pacific port city of Valparaiso, a second annual get-together for states to pledge support for the marine ecosystem. President Barack Obama will address the meeting in a video message to announce two new "National Marine Sanctuaries" in the United States, the White House said.
