The Office of Protected Resources works in cooperation with NOAA Fisheries Regions and Science Centers to provide educational experiences and materials for students, education professionals, and the public about the conservation and protection of marine species. We believe that people of any age and in any geographic region can make a positive impact on the marine environment.
