The project has two survey areas- one just south of the current sanctuary boundaries and a second one near the Canadian border. In the first area the team will look for historic shipwrecks searching within the historic shipping lanes. In the second area we’ll search for prehistoric archeological sites that could be over 7,500 year old.
