Exciting news! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) is considering Hudson Canyon as a National Marine Sanctuary. The designation process kicks off with a 60 day comment period running from now until August 8th. Show your support for the Hudson Canyon Marine Sanctuary by signing our petition to NOAA Administrator Spinrad. This is a once in a generation opportunity to support marine conservation and deepen the connection of the more than 28 million residents of New York and New Jersey to our treasured ocean resources.

Take a couple of minutes to send a message to designate the Hudson Canyon as a Marine Sanctuary.

You can also attend an in person hearing on 7/19 in Manhattan. We’d love to have as many members attending as possible and testify. Here are the details:
