The Humboldt Collaborative draws its large membership from the rich scientific and nonprofit community, tribal governments, fishermen, and agencies active on the North Coast.
Working with natural history filmmaker and HSU Professor David Scheerer, Collaborative members have put together an exciting video outreach project that engages diverse sectors of the community in the creation of a series of short MPA themed videos. Using a combination of HSU student filmmakers, high school film classes, and paid crew, the collaborative will shoot original footage from diverse sources that tell unique stories of the North Coast’s relationship with MPAs and the ocean.

MPA Teacher Toolkits
Teaming up with the Mendocino and Del Norte Collaboratives, Humboldt created a K-2nd grade MPA curriculum and 3rd-5th grade MPA curriculum. They also developed two Teacher Trunks that feature conveniently packaged MPA curriculum, materials, and related activities, that will be available for loan across the counties in school classrooms and with non-formal environmental educations. The curricula are NGSS-aligned and designed for students in grades K-5. Toolkits will be loaned to informal and formal educators in Humboldt and Mendocino Counties.
Kid’s Ocean Day
The Humboldt Collaborative, working with Friends of the Dunes, Incorporated MPA education into an existing Kid’s Ocean Day program that saw over 1,000 students from 14 local schools. This MPA content was also shared with Ocean Day Coordinators throughout the state. Access the presentation slides below.
MPA Video Series
A series of four videos created in collaboration with the Del Norte MPA Collaborative to raise awareness of marine protected areas in the North Coast.
Marine Protected Area (MPA) Collaborative Members statewide are field-testing Trident mini-ROVs (remotely operated vehicles or underwater drones) in collaboration with SoFar Ocean, National Geographic and the S.E.E. Initiative. More information about Collaborative expeditions focusing on MPA outreach, compliance, and citizen science projects can be found on our Resources page.
