Tell NOAA: Hudson Canyon should be our next national marine sanctuary
We, the undersigned, urge NOAA's Office of Marine Sanctuaries to designate Hudson Canyon a National Marine Sanctuary. Hudson Canyon, located offshore about 100 miles southeast of the Statue of Liberty, is an ecologically rich area and provides clean air, fresh water, and recreation to nearby residents. It is critical that the canyon and its interconnected ecosystems be permanently protected from oil, mineral, and gas exploration.
Thank you for beginning the public process to designate Hudson Canyon a National Marine Sanctuary. We can't wait to see this area protected for current and future generations.
