Many national marine sanctuaries are far offshore, but onshore exhibits around the country make it possible to get to know these special places without getting wet! Check out our video to learn about the partnership between Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the Oakland Museum of California. Will you be visiting one of these exhibits soon? #EarthIsBlue.
TranscriptWelcome to Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary. This extremely diverse marine community lies off the West Coast of Northern California. Strong currents and rapidly changing weather make Cordell Bank a tricky place for recreational diving.
Luckily, you can experience the sanctuary without even getting your feet wet by visiting its partner organization at the Oakland Museum of California.
I'm Jennifer Stock with Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary and I'm here at the Oakland Museum of California where we have fantastic exhibit about Cordell Bay National Marine Sanctuary, one of the four California sanctuaries.
We came together at the museum during a big renovation to bring new content and new stories about California's amazing landscapes and biodiverse ecosystems. You don't need to be a diver or hop in a boat to be able to experience Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary.
