Hi, I’m Owlie Skywarn! I am the National Weather Service’s go-to-owl for weather science and safety information. At the National Weather Service (NWS), we provide weather, water, and climate data, forecasts, and warnings in order to protect life and property. And I’m Sanctuary Sam, the National Marine Sanctuary System’s resident California sea lion! At NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, we manage a national system of marine protected areas so that you and future generations can continue to explore and enjoy the wonders of the sea.
