CNMI Ocean Month

Our Ocean, Our Responsibility


As a community deeply connected to our lands and seas, it is our commitment to ensure that our precious natural resources are conserved, protected, and effectively managed for generations to come. It is through ecosystem-based management, effective conservation, and fostering environmental stewardship that we are able to protect, and in many cases, restore and enhance, our resources.

In the CNMI, the ocean serves as more than just a source of sustenance and recreation, but provides a number of other valuable services to support sustainable livelihoods, coastline protection, and tourism opportunities. As such, DCRM celebrates this invaluable resource during the month of June, alongside the rest of the world.

The Division of Coastal Resources Management would like to invite community members to join us in a variety of activities and events, as shown on our calendar below, to celebrate our ocean.
