NOAA rejects nomination for Aleutian Islands sanctuary
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration rejected a nomination to establish the Aleutian Islands National Marine Sanctuary on Jan. 23. Washington, D.C. conservation group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, or PEER, submitted the nomination to the administration on Dec. 22, 2014. The Washington group concerns itself with protecting the mammals, sea birds, and submersed marine life in the entire Aleutians archipelago from overfishing, marine transportation, and oil and gas development.
