FOMT welcomes opportunity to comment on Sanctuary nomination

Posted on Jan 26 2022

Ocean advocates in the Marianas are welcoming an opportunity to provide comments on a review of the nomination for a national marine sanctuary in the Northern Mariana Islands.

“We have asked for a seat at the table when it comes to managing our natural resources,” said Rep. Sheila Babauta (D-Saipan). “And this is the federal government inviting us to participate.”

The Friends of the Mariana Trench have organized workshops and meetings to help the community be involved and have their voices heard. During this comment period the group is working with scientists and community members to provide updates to its nomination, which it first submitted in 2016.
