The Sanctuary Advisory Council (AC) unanimously voted in support of creating a ‘Recreation and Tourism Sub-Committee’ at the December 2013 meeting. Pursuant to AC protocols, the activities of this sub-committee are assessed on an annual basis. The aim of this group is to help support our shared goals of:

  • improving sanctuary awareness;
  • cross-promoting a myriad of recreation & tourism adventures available;
  • adding value to local businesses seeking broader marketing strategies by highlighting their unique proximity to a national marine sanctuary.

One of the popular mechanisms to meet the above goals is the development of bi-monthly newsletters. You can access past issues (as pdf’s) here:
