LA MPA Collaborative lgo


The Los Angeles MPA Collaborative channels broad and diverse perspectives to build ocean resilience and promote the cultural, recreational, and ecological value of Los Angeles County’s marine protected areas.


To better serve LA’s culturally and ethnically diverse communities with specialized information on marine protected areas, the LA Collaborative is working to develop a strategy for working with community-based groups on MPA outreach, and has developed a bilingual (Spanish/English) fishing guide that they will soon be printing and distributing.
