Cross Cutting Issue Name: Community Outreach  

Under the National Marine Sanctuary Program (NMSP), each sanctuary in the system conducts education and outreach activities to build broad public awareness about the existence and purpose of our nation’s marine sanctuaries. The NMSP recognizes that a well-informed local, regional, and national constituency greatly enhances the ability of the sanctuaries to protect their cultural and natural resources. Therefore, outreach activities should provide local and state governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations, constituents, and the general public with the information necessary to be effective partners in the stewardship of sanctuary resources.
