National Marine Sanctuaries: Our Deepest Treasures


Author(s):
Abstract:
The National Marine Sanctuary Program, created in 1972 under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, conserves and protects the national deepest treasures. In 1975, the USS Monitor wreck site became the first national marine sanctuary. Since then twelve more sites have been added, covering about 20,000 square miles of ocean and Great Lakes waters.
