A Closer Look at the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary
Just like state parks are dedicated to preserving wildlife on land, marine sanctuaries protect ecosystems in the water. Volunteers can take a ferry to keep an eye on the animals and look for change. Watch this video to learn about the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary.
The Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary is a haven for birds and marine animals alike because there’s plenty of food to snatch up. The purpose of the sanctuary is to protect the ecosystem and its inhabitants, and volunteers learn about the changes by watching animals’ behaviors. Seabird activity is especially helpful when trying to understand changes in the ecosystem.
