Management Plan Review
Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary has embarked on its
management plan review and the public is encouraged to participate. Learn more by attending the next Gray's Reef Sanctuary Advisory Council meeting on November 16, in Brunswick, GA.
As part of the process, Gray's Reef has reviewed the research and monitoring work done by scientists in
the sanctuary over the past several years. A 2012 addendum to the original 2008 Gray's Reef Condition
Report, finds that the sanctuary has improved its overall ratings of "good/fair" to "good'' in several
areas; particularly in areas directly impacted by specific management actions and areas where more
research has been conducted.
In addition, the sanctuary recently completed a detailed
Knowledge, Attitudes and Perceptions Survey
sanctuary users and non-users about management strategies and regulations of the sanctuary.
Make your voice heard and be part of the 2012
Gray's Reef NMS management plan review process.
