The National Marine Sanctuaries are a network of underwater parks encompassing more than 600,000 square miles of marine and Great Lakes waters from Washington state to the Florida Keys, and from Lake Huron to American Samoa. The network includes a system of 14 national marine sanctuaries and Papahanaumokuakea and Rose Atoll marine national monuments.


 Where are the National Marine Sanctuaries located?


Just like our National Parks, our National Marine Sanctuaries need funding to keep getting boaters on the water and conduct critical research.
