Hot Spot

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary | Feb. 20-25, 2020

Florida Keys, FL

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary protects 2,900 square nautical miles surrounding the Florida Keys, south of Miami and westward to encompass the Dry Tortugas. The sanctuary protects magnificent, unique and nationally significant marine resources such as North America’s only coral barrier reef and more than 6,000 species of marine life. The most common impacts observed in the sanctuary are vessel impacts to submerged areas, marine debris issues and user conflicts.


During the Hot Spot activation, the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team led a variety of workshops, outreach programs, and community events at Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Volunteers gathered at the Visitor Center and Aquarium for an Upper Keys Service Project. Other events included a Community Outreach at the Nautical Flea Market and a Lower Keys Service Project.
