section three: reading comprehension
in 1972, a century after the first national park in the united states was established at
yellowstone, legislation was passed to create the national marine sanctuaries program.
the intent of this legislation was to provide protection to selected coastal habitats similar
to that existing for land areas designated as national parks. the designation of an areas
5) a indicates that it is a protected area, just as a national park is. people
are permitted to visit and observe there, but living organisms and their s may
not be harmed or removed.
the national marine sanctuaries program is administered by the national oceanic
and atmospheric administration, a branch of the united states department of commerce.
10) initially, 70 sites were proposed as candidates for . two and a half decades
later, only fifteen sanctuaries had been designated, with half of these established after
1978. they range in size from the very small (less than i square kilometer) fagatele bay
national marine sanctuary in american samoa to the monterey bay national marine
sanctuary in california, extending over 15,744 square kilometers.
15) the national marine sanctuaries program is a crucial part of new management
practices in which whole communities of , and not just individual , are
offered some degree of protection from habitat and overexploitation. only
in this way can a reasonable degree of be maintained in a
that also maintains the natural inters that exist among these .
20) several other types of protected areas exist in the united states and other
countries. the national estuarine research reserve system, managed by the united
states government, includes 23 designated and protected estuaries. outside the united
states, protected-area programs exist as parks, reserves, and preserves.
over 100 designated areas exist around the periphery of the carbbean sea. others range
25) from the well-known australian great barrer reef marine park to lesser-known parks
in countries such as thailand and indonesia, where tourism is placing growing pressures
on coral reef systems. as state, national, and international agencies come to
recognize the importance of conserving bio, projected areas.
whether as sanctuaries, parks, or estuarine reserves, will play an important
role in preserving that .
