Chumash Heritage Marine Sanctuary Moves Forward

WASHINGTON -

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced today that the nomination for a new Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary has been accepted. The acceptance recognizes the site as deserving special status, and puts it officially under consideration for protec- tion as part of the National Marine Sanctuary Program. The proposed Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary would be the first one to focus on indigenous culture and history as a primary core value along with protection of ocean habitat.
