U.S. adds two marine sanctuaries

ADVERTISEMENT

U.S. President Obama in October named two new marine sanctuaries, the first in 15 years.

One of the sanctuaries will be an 875-square-mile section of Lake Michigan off the shore of Wisconsin, which includes nearly 40 known shipwrecks, some of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The other sanctuary is a 14-square-mile area of the Potomac River, which includes Maryland’s Mallows Bay, an area that is home to bald eagles, herons, beavers, river otters and numerous species of fish. The bay also features the famed “ghost fleet,” ship remnants from World War I.
