Just as areas of land may be set aside for specific uses, so too can parts of the ocean. Marine zones can help protect sensitive natural resources from overuse, separate conflicting uses, and preserve the diversity of life and the integrity of habitat. Zones are an important tool for managing marine resources and have been used around the world. The sanctuary's zones are designed to preserve sensitive parts of the ecosystem while still allowing activities that are compatible with resource protection. Directed by Erik Hutchins. Presented by Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Everglades National Park and the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
