Save our ocean National Monument!

Mystic Aquarium logo


Thursday is World Oceans Day!
Join Mystic Aquarium in Ocean Conservation. 


It's time for a tidal wave of comments to support marine national monuments!

Mystic Aquarium's contribution of scientific research helped secure the designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts on September 14, 2016 as the first Marine National Monument in the Atlantic Ocean. Today, an Executive Order threatens to undo the protection of this and many of our nation's most cherished natural, cultural, and historic wonders.

Help us reach 1 million comments to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke!

Defend the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument by submitting a comment to the Department of Interior!

Let your voice be heard!    
  • Share why protection of this monument is important to you, or simply copy/paste this sentence:   I support the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument."
  • Submit comments before July 10!
 We must protect the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts, and all monuments in the ocean and on land from harm, so future generations of Americans can enjoy and benefit from them.


Conservation and education isn't all fun and games...
