The Center’s latest commitment to marine conservation is the Cape Cod Bay Ocean Sanctuary & Monitoring Programs. The shared mission of the two programs is to:
-To study the quality and health of Cape Cod Bay through applied science and research;
-To protect and when possible restore the Bayâ€™s estuaries and marshes, barrier beaches, creeks, rivers and harbors from human and natural threats;
-To inform the public and decision makers about the natural resources of the Bay and threats to their long-term protection;
-To advise local, state and federal resource managers about this unique marine environment;
-To preserve Cape Cod Bay as a State Ocean Sanctuary, as defined by Chapter 132 of the General Laws of Massachusetts.
The Water Quality Monitoring program is supported by State and County organizations and private foundations.
