Established in 2007, the Research Natural Area of Dry Tortugas National Park is a 46-square-mile aquatic reserve designed to bring back ecological stability and capacity for self-renewal by lessening human disruption. The RNA complements the nearby Tortugas Ecological Reserve of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the state of Florida and adds to a region-wide effort to strengthen resource protection. Together the RNA and the larger Tortugas Ecological Reserve will help to ensure the success of both aquatic and earthbound ecosystems while supplying exceptional chances for scientific research and public education and learning. The Dry Tortugas National Park Final Rule published in the Federal Register Notice on December 20, 2006, explaining the RNA is readily available here. Numerous park reality sheets about what the Dry Tortugas Research Natural Area is and the scientific research at Dry Tortugas National Park provide extra details. Executing the Dry Tortugas National Park Research Natural Area Science Plan: The 5-Year Report 2012. In 2012 park staff completed a 5-year report that sums up the development of scientific research strategy tasks to day.
