A Valuable Ecological Treasure at Risk

The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument is an ecological treasure. In 2016, the Obama administration extended strong and lasting protection to the area by declaring it the first marine national monument in the U.S. Atlantic Ocean. The Trump administration, however, is threatening to remove this vital protection, putting this vital resource at risk.
