Protect the Chumash ocean sanctuary
Docket Number: NOAA-NOS-2020-0063
The coastal waters included in the proposed Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary (CHNMS) are a priceless ocean wonder. There's so much in this area that must be protected for generations to come. The proposed sanctuary is home to rich cultural and historical sites. It also protects rare and endangered wildlife, like sea otters. And it features lovely stretches of beach that families can enjoy together. I strongly urge you to extend the Chumash sanctuary nomination for another five years.
