Who decides where to put marine reserves?



  1. 0 Votes

    Currently, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is the deciding body of when and where to establish National Marine Sanctuaries. The mission statement of the NOAA is “to serve as the trustee for the nation’s system of marine protected areas, to conserve, protect, and enhance their biodiversity, ecological integrity and cultural legacy.” Marine Reserves function in two ways: as sanctuaries for marine animals and botany to thrive under ideal conditions; and as areas that have been legislated to halt the extraction of resources, such as oil or gas.
