Community Stewardship & Engagement

David J. Ruck/NOAA

National marine sanctuaries belong to the American people. The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation connects people to their sanctuaries and provides opportunities to get involved at local, state, and national levels. We encourage local stewardship and national engagement that leads to big differences for our ocean and Great Lakes, including supporting volunteer opportunities, hosting community events and promoting national policies to support marine conservation.
