Stellwagen Alive! is on a mission—a mission to preserve Stellwagen Bank and the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. We are all at risk of losing this undersea treasure that we’ve depended on for centuries.
We seek to preserve Stellwagen's:
•Ecological Integrity: Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is at the heart of the Gulf of Maine Ecosystem.
•Biological Diversity: The coexistence of geographic features and oceanographic forces, occur in only a handful of locations on our planet – over 500 species in total including the giant bluefin tuna, the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale, threatened Humpback and Fin Whales, rare sea turtles.
•Economic Legacy: Stellwagen Bank has been one of the most productive fishing grounds in the United States.
•Cultural Legacy: There are over 18 documented shipwrecks.
