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.

Museums and Aquariums

And, where would we be without funding? The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is one of our staunchest supporters created to assist the federally managed National Marine Sanctuary Program with education and outreach programs designed to preserve, protect and promote meaningful opportunities for public interaction with the nation's marine sanctuaries.
