The sanctuary staff is eager to help reporters, journalists, book authors, photographers, and others in your efforts to produce engaging, accurate stories about the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary. If you have questions, we will do our best to provide accurate answers in a timely manner. While we do have some excellent public domain video footage, staff availability may affect our response time - the more time you can give us to provide footage, the more likely you are to receive it before your deadline.

For assistance, contact the sanctuary office at (757) 599-3122, or email
