MPA Collaborative

The Mendocino Collaborative brings together tribal governments, fishermen, local elected officials, environmental NGOs, and agencies.

The Collaborative is currently working to provide marine protected area outreach and education to schools, councils, clubs and associations in Mendocino and Lake Counties. The outreach team consists of representatives from the tribal, fishing, and conservation communities that provide balanced information on MPAs to the community, increase partnerships, and build social capital for more effective ocean health and marine protected area related activities. The Collaborative presents to local schools and clubs, and tables at community events over the summer and the fall such as Point Arena’s Fourth of July Celebration and the Noyo Harbor World Champion Abalone Cook Off & Festival.
