Marine sanctuary in Florida Keys seeks public comment

ADVERTISEMENT

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary seeks public comment on sanctuary boundaries, marine zones and marine regulations. Input will shape Florida Keys marine conservation for the future in areas including Key West and the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge’s Backcountry Management Plan.

During this initial public comment period, the sanctuary will “scope out” or solicit the public’s views on the direction the sanctuary should take to protect and conserve the living marine resources and submerged cultural resources of the Florida Keys. This information will help define the issues for marine zoning and regulatory review.

Sanctuary and refuge staff will provide presentations about sanctuary zones, regulations and the Refuge’s Backcountry Management Plan at five Florida meetings.

Comments may be submitted electronically, via mail, or in person at meetings throughout south Florida and the Florida Keys between June 19-27.

Details on locations and times are provided at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary website. To provide comment electronically click online through the Federal eRulemaking Portal through June 29, under docket number NOAA-NOS-2012-0061.

Public comments are being accepted through June 29.
