The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary is one of 14 marine sanctuaries administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. It is located along the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state. The sanctuary was declared in 1994 and encompasses 3,189 square miles (8,260 km2) of the Pacific Ocean from Cape Flattery in the north, to the mouth of the Copalis River, a distance of about 162.5 miles (261.5 km). Extending 25 to 40 miles (40 to 64 km) from the shore, it includes most of the continental shelf, as well as parts of three important submarine canyons, the Nitinat Canyon, the Quinault Canyon and the Juan de Fuca Canyon. For 64 miles (103 km) along the coast, the sanctuary shares stewardship with the Olympic National Park

  • L’Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, littéralement « Sanctuaire national marin de la côte Olympique », est un des quatorze sanctuaires marins des États-Unis. Situé au large de la péninsule Olympique à l'ouest de l'État de Washington, il protège une zone de 8 572 km2 appartenant à l'océan Pacifique. Le sanctuaire existe depuis 1994. Il s'étend sur plus de 200 km entre le Cap Flattery au nord et l'embouchure de la Copalis River au sud. Sa largeur varie de 40 à environ 65 km. La zone marine abrite trois canyons marins (Nitinat Canyon, Quinault Canyon et Juan de Fuca Canyon). Le sanctuaire et le parc national Olympique ont une frontière commune au niveau des côtes sur environ 100 km ce qui en fait un important écosystème protégé aussi bien marin que terrestre. (fr)
