Posting this again because I messed up a little lol. Here are some of my favorite photos I've taken (or have been taken of me) in the Monterey National Marine Sanctuary! Full of amazing animals and views. But, In April, a White House executive order (named: "Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy") called for a review of national marine sanctuaries and monuments for oil and gas development. This jeopardizes the health of everything living in the sanctuaries, because, as we all know, oil spills are extremely no bueno. So we need to protect them! Speak up today if you want to help out, we only have an open public commenting period until July 26th. .

A sample text that I got from @montereybayaquarium 's post, that I'm putting (along with these photos) as I sign is:
"I live and work in both Monterey, CA and San Pedro, CA, and I am proud that my state is home to four national marine sanctuaries. The expansions of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, & the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary each involved years of public input and agency collaboration. they were expanded to increase science-based protections for the exceptional marine wildlife and habitats that help drive our economy and inspire our way of life. please maintain the full extent of protections for each of the California National Marine Sanctuaries. .
