The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary was established in the early 1990s and a management plan was added in 1997 as things had changed. NOAA has decided to add more protection as things have changed again. Threats such as fishing, climate change, and cruise ship waste are harming corals at an unprecedented rate.
NOAA is proposing to add 8 more protected areas spanning 5 square miles to help protect the reefs and their species.
