The Sanctuary acts as a resource trustee during oil spills or other emergency situations that could potentially impact sanctuary resources. In the event of an emergency, this page will be updated with information pertaining to media inqueries, volunteer opportunities, and other important information.

To be better prepared for such an emergency, staff have gathered important data together in an easily accessible PDF document.
