Protect Our Pacific Marine Monuments
We need your voice to help protect our Pacific marine monuments!
From the deepest canyon on Earth, to the most pristine atolls and oldest corals in U.S. waters, our wondrous Pacific monuments safeguard special marine places with unparalleled natural beauty and cultural significance. It is critical that we protect these monuments for the good of our ocean and future generations.
The leadership of the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council, over the objections of members, including the State of Hawaii, is asking the Trump Administration to open the Pacific Monuments to commercial fishing, falsely claiming that the prohibitions on commercial fishing are harming fisheries and causing economic losses. Opening our Pacific Monuments would undermine the health and resilience of these special places and undermine fishery conservation efforts.
