Partnerships are a mainstay of the National Marine Sanctuary Program. We work together with educators, researchers, scientists, non-profit organizations, zoos, museums, aquariums, visitor centers, and people like you to get our messages out on the airwaves. Without these partnerships, all of the wonders of the underwater worlds within our sanctuaries would remain a mystery.
Some of our more visible partners include The Mariners’ Museum, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, North Carolina Aquarium, Nauticus, Hampton Roads Naval Museum and North Carolina Maritime Museum who all proudly display exhibits and/or information about the cultural and natural resources of the Montior NMS. Researchers from a variety of universities, the United States Navy, Ocean Exploration, NURC, and other institutions regularly assist us in evaluating and exploring the reaches of our sanctuary.
And, where would we be without funding? The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is one of our staunchest supporters in this respect.
