One of our nation’s most spectacular marine protected areas, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is filled with an amazing array of wildlife – from tiny shrimp to giant blue whales. Stretching along the central California coast from San Francisco to Cambria, the sanctuary includes pristine beaches, jewel-like tide pools, lush kelp forests, steep canyons and an offshore seamount hosting 34 species of marine mammals, more than 100 species of seabirds and shorebirds, more than 400 species of fish and countless invertebrates and algae. We invite you to explore and help protect this national undersea treasure.
