The National Marine Sanctuaries Media Library provides access to thousands of images and video clips that tell the story of "America's underwater treasures." On the homepage, visitors can look through the "Photo Galleries" to get a sense of what the site has to offer. There are six galleries here, and they include "Sea Lion Highlights", "Human Impact", "Fish Portraits", and "Scenic Beauty". Visitors looking for specific items can use the "Keyword" search feature and also take advantage of the "Video" search feature. This feature is quite detailed, as users can look through broad categories like "Birds", "Maritime Heritage", and "Plants". Additionally, visitors can look for media images that originate from specific Marine Sanctuaries sites, including Monterey Bay and the Florida Keys.
