Cape Falcon marine reserve
Located in the ocean between Manzanita and Cannon Beach, Oregon, the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve site is a 20 square mile area dedicated to conservation and scientific research. Just like parks and protected natural areas on land, there are multiple benefits of protected areas in the ocean. They conserve ocean wildlife and biodiversity. Marine Reserves sites also serve as living laboratories, where we can learn about marine reserve protections and Oregon’s ocean environment to help us maintain our seas for future generations.
The marine reserve is managed by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Learn more about regulations and Oregon’s other marine reserve sites by visiting Oregon Marine Reserve website and their Cape Falcon Marine Reserve page.
