Sanctuary Nomination Video


This is Edward James Olmos. For the first time in years, the doors have been opened to establish new National Marine Sanctuaries.

I challenge everyone who cares about our Nation's ocean and coasts to make your voice heard.

This isn’t just about the environment. It’s about taking a stand for the special places you hold dear.

This is your chance to let America know - to let the world know - that 'this place matters to me.'

We have an opportunity to make a difference and it’s up to all of us to take responsibility – for ourselves and for future generations.
