The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary encompasses over 2,800 square nautical miles of ocean waters from the mangroves and beaches of the Keys, all the way out to the deep ocean. The Sanctuary is home to a wide diversity of organisms, and serves as a resting place for migrating animals at different times of the year. The hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), an endangered species, can occasionally be seen on the reefs of the Keys resting or feeding on sponges and jellyfish. (photo: Jerry Burcham)
