Here Be Shipwrecks: Thunder Bay Sanctuary to Grow

The US House approved legislation that will expand the Thunder Bay Sanctuary right up to the International Boundary. The Sanctuary is home to 116 historic shipwrecks in “shipwreck alley” and by extending the area under federal shelter another 178 shipwrecks will be defended. The US Senate passed a similar bill last spring.

Chairman of the Thunder Bay Sanctuary Advisory Council, Steve Kroll told a House panel that extending the border would expand Coast Guard protections against vandalism and other threats, according to E&E News Daily.
