(329) Facing the 1992 presidential elections, President Bush designated the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS), which is largest marine sanctuary extending from Marin County to San Louis Obisbo County.
The MBNMS is a haven for sea otters, seals, shorebirds, squid, sardines and other species, including many that are threatened or endangered.
Two of the lease sales occurred prior to the establishment of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (335) and all were prior to the creation of the MBNMS. The environmental impacts on these marine sanctuaries, which are ecologically significant areas, represent extraordinary circumstances that must be evaluated.
