Protect Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary
Docket #: NOAA-NOS-2020-0003
Critically endangered species like the North Atlantic Right whale rely on places like the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary for protection, but the current draft management plan fails to do enough to protect these sea creatures. Without updating rules around recreational and commercial fishing and shipping within the sanctuary, human actions will continue to threaten many of the species that call it home.
Stellwagen Bank is meant to protect marine life, and unless we strengthen protections, it will continue failing at this purpose. Revising the draft management plan will determine the future of this critical sanctuary.
I urge you to strengthen protections for Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary in the draft management plan.
