This year NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is hosting its seventh national “Get into Your Sanctuary” celebration to raise awareness about the value of our national marine sanctuaries as iconic destinations for responsible recreation and stewardship through a series of special activities.
From now until August 8, experience all of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary System from wherever you are, through virtual opportunities. From taking an ocean safari to virtually diving around shipwrecks or learning how to responsibly catch fish and even cook them from a professional chef, there will be something for everyone to enjoy and/or plan a future trip!
A list of planned Get Into Your Sanctuary events can be found here.
In addition, the Get Into Your Sanctuary Photo Contest runs until September 6 (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend).
