Explore Sanctuaries

Explore America’s national marine sanctuaries. Discover the wonders they hold, and uncover what makes each site unique here. Engage with us to protect our ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes.

How to get involved

The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation makes it easy to get involved and ensure a healthy future for America’s coastlines, cultural resources, and habitats and species that call sanctuaries home. From volunteering your time to attending one of our events, and from voicing your support for sanctuaries to making a contribution that supports one of our programs, there are a number of ways to support ocean and Great Lakes conservation no matter where you live.
