The ocean is an important driver of weather and climate and is integral to our food supply and economy, yet it is one of the least understood systems on earth. Unbiased science is critical to better understand and effectively manage our ocean resources, guide national policy decisions, promote economic growth, and conserve the ocean as an irreplaceable treasure for future generations.
Check out these stories from people across the country about how NOAA supports science and conservation:

“Without the resources provided by NOAA, the Seacoast Science Center would not be as well armed with the tools and information to encourage conservation and a further appreciation for New Hampshire’s vibrant coast.”
