Point 10 - Marine Sanctuary Office

Move your mouse over the numbers on the map for a brief description and click to go there.

Point 10Here upstairs over the stage commons area we have the newest satellite office for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The first and main office is located in Monterey on Foam Street. It is available for Marine Sanctuary education and outreach programs. If you want to know anything or contact Marine Sanctuary staff, here is the place.

The Marine Sanctuary was designated 6 years ago after 17 years of review and political agreement. MBNMS is the largest of our nation's 12 marine sanctuaries. It spans some 350 miles of coastline from the Marin Headlands just north of the Golden Gate to Cambria just south of the Hearst Castle. At its widest arc, it reaches 50 miles offshore generally following the 1,500 ft. underwater contour.

The Marine Sanctuary Division is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), within the Commerce Department.

This office is also shared by the Center for Marine Conservation and Baynet, a group of volunteers that provide docent staffing for public education.

The phone number for the Santa Cruz Office is (831) 420-1630.
