National Marine Sanctuary

Get Into Your Sanctuary - Conservation Through Participation jennifer.simms Mon, 08/05/2019 - 09:45

One way to describe a National Marine Sanctuary (NMS) is to consider it a “National Park of the Ocean”, and much like our park system, these ocean parks are special areas that protect important marine and freshwater ecosystems around the nation. Each year, the sanctuaries celebrate Get Into Your Sanctuary, a day or days to raise awareness about the value of our national marine sanctuaries as iconic destinations for responsible recreation through a series of special activities.
