Washington and Havana will cooperate in the scientific arena, in the administration and management of marine protected areas, according to a memorandum signed Wednesday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Park Service of the United States (NPS) with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Cuba.

The agreement provides for collaborations to promote the conservation and management of marine natural resources, sharing scientific and technical information and promoting understanding and comprehension. The project will start with Guanahacabibes National Park, including the offshore Bancos de San Antonio, in Cuba; and the Flower Garden Banks and Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas National Parks and Biscayne Bay national parks, in the United States.

“The opportunities for international cooperation in marine conservation is invaluable and this agreement brings us closer to securing a healthy and productive ocean for everyone,” said NOAA Administrator, Kathryn Sullivan.
