Florida Ocean and Sea Life Protection & Conservation

Florida’s ocean sanctuaries protect large stretches of ocean from human influence. They serve as both a haven to over 6,000 species of marine life and a conservatory of significant marine resources. Ocean sanctuaries exists all across Florida’s coastline and the largest one is the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
