The NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries aims to provide teachers with resources and training to support ocean literacy in America's classrooms.
National marine sanctuaries are living classrooms that can be explored in person or through interactive digital labs and activities.
Ocean Guardian Programs
Ocean Guardian programs encourage children to explore their natural surroundings to form a sense of personal connection to the ocean and/or watersheds in which they live.
Games and Activities
Games, coloring pages, and fun activities to help you learn about the National Marine Sanctuaries.
The Media Library is a comprehensive collection of public domain photographs and short video clips from all 14 national marine sanctuaries that NOAA manages.
