The Final Management Plan (2009) was prepared by NOAA and the State of Michigan in cooperation with the Thunder Bay Sanctuary Advisory Council and with input from the public, local governments, state and federal agencies, and other stakeholders. The plan is comprised of four action plans (Resource Protection, Education and Outreach, Research, and Sanctuary Operations and Administration). It sets priorities to guide sanctuary programs and operations, assists the advisory council in providing advice on management decisions, and provides the public with a better understanding of the sanctuary’s strategies to protect Thunder Bay’s resources.
