For more than 40 years our national marine sanctuaries have worked to protect places of historic/cultural, ecological, and natural importance in America's ocean and the Great Lakes.
We are pleased to be working with communities along our Wisconsin coast to apply for the establishment of a national marine sanctuary to preserve shipwrecks in our mid-Lake Michigan region. Watch for updates on this effort. To learn more about NOAA and National Marine Sanctuaries, visit sanctuaries.noaa.gov
