Marianas Marine National Monument Map

marianas marine national monument mapThis is it. The whole 95,000 square mile Marianas Marine National Monument. There is a trench unit, an islands unit, and 21 active hydrothermal submarine volcanoes. Each of those areas will have certain protections, but we do not know yet the specifics.  You will note that the trench unit includes some of the federal waters near Guam.

I'm hearing conflicting reports on the name. We'll know for sure tomorrow afternoon.

can you reference (link) the source of the map - very hard to find anywhere else on the web

I pulled it off the LA times. They have it in pdf. It may not be up anymore. Email me and I'll send you a copy.
