The Office of National Marine Sanctuaries formally designated Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary as an Ocean Acidification Sentinel Site in November of 2019. The four Coastal Treaty Tribes who are sustained by these waters – the Hoh, Makah, Quileute, and the Quinault Indian Nation – together with the state of Washington, support this designation for the Washington coast. A roundtable-style steering committee guides Sentinel Site activities and ensures broad representation of coastal resource manager and stakeholder interests.

The Sentinel Site informs resource managers and coastal communities about the impacts of ocean acidification on their marine resources, cultures, communities, and economies to ensure they are prepared for a changing ocean. Climate change effects are the biggest threats to the condition of the sanctuary, as identified in the recently completed condition report
