The National Marine Sanctuaries Media Library is a comprehensive collection of public domain photographs and short video clips from all 14 marine protected areas managed by NOAA. The images provide an up-close look at unique wildlife and habitats and remind us of the need to protect these areas. Educators of all levels can visit the library to peruse a photo gallery of interest -- Human Impact, Recreation, Citizen Science, Maritime Heritage, Education and Outreach, or Scenic Beauty -- or enter various parameters in the database to refine their search.
