Partnerships are a mainstay of the National Marine Sanctuary System. We work together with educators, researchers, scientists, non-profit organizations, zoos, museums, aquariums, visitor centers, and others who support our mission and goals. Without these partnerships, all of the wonders and history of Monitor National Marine Sanctuary would remain a mystery.
