Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary attracts divers from around the world.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association released its second documentary in a series exploring national marine sanctuaries. The latest segment looks at Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in northwest Lake Huron.

The 4,300-square-mile Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary includes one of the largest collection of shipwrecks in the country, and it hosts many regional fishing tournaments. The Great Lakes Maritime Center in Alpena, Mich., houses the visitor center for the sanctuary.

The NMMA encourages boaters and outdoor recreation enthusiasts to visit national marine sanctuaries. The video series highlights the importance of national marine sanctuaries to local economies and the need for funding to protect and maintain each park. Additional videos will be released in the coming weeks.
