MARINE LIFE FIELD GUIDE of the NOAA National Marine Sanctuary Program

The NOAA National Marine Sanctuary Program has unveiled a new, online resource that highlights the diverse marine life of America's ocean and Great Lakes treaures. The Encylcopedia of the Sanctuaries is available online and is part of a continuing NOAA effort to enhance public awareness, understanding and appreciation of the marine environment. This online field guide provides photos, streaming video and important biological information for over 100 marine species from each of the national marine sanctuaries in the United States, ranging from spiny lobster to killer whales and white-tipped reef sharks to sea turtles. This is a fantastic resource for formal and informal educators, students of all ages, zoos and aquarias, science centers, and natural history museums.
