Contents Notes
This atlas was developed by NOAA and the Smithsonian Institution and devoted to ocean education and literacy and was a product of a partnership to develop the Ocean Hall in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The atlas covers a comprehensive range of subjects from the physical ocean to current conservation efforts, and challenges to address to ensure a productive future for the ocean. The conservation chapter introduced marine protected areas, provides an overview of MPAs worldwide, and addresses coral reef conservation, sustainable fisheries, protection of marine mammals and turtles, and the National Marine Sanctuary System.
