It takes work on the ground to help national marine sanctuaries thrive.

Local partners will allow the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary to achieve broader goals, harness the expertise and experience of renowned scientists and scholars, and further research, monitoring, education, outreach and enforcement within the sanctuary. The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will work with the many local partners that have been so instrumental in safeguarding the sanctuary and inspiring the public on the Sanctuary’s importance to the region’s economy and way of life.
