Sustainable Seas Expedition to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary

National Marine Sanctuary Program (July 2000)

National Marine Sanctuary Program Special Report, June 26-July 12, 2000. 111p.

ABSTRACT

The Sustainable Seas Expeditions is a five-year project of underwater exploration and discovery of the marine world with special emphasis on the national marine sanctuaries of the United States. The expeditions are the brainchild of Dr. Sylvia Earle, scholar and Explorer-In-Residence of the National Geographic Society. Led by Dr. Earle, the expeditions are a project of the National Geographic Society in cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other government agencies, industry, and private institutions, made possible by a grant from the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund. The world renowned National Geographic Society, an institution recognized for over a century of achievement in exploration and conservation, has project oversight. Ship and staff support are provided by NOAA, the federal agency responsible for managing the National Marine Sanctuary Program and known for its extensive experience in marine research, exploration, data acquisition, and product development.
