The Monterey MPA Collaborative draws its diverse membership from the rich scientific, academic, nonprofit and agency community centered in Monterey County.
MPA Ambassador Program: Members have worked to incorporate marine protected area outreach and provide continued support to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary’s Bay Net and Team OCEAN Volunteer Programs; and helped create a State Parks PORTS Program highlighting Point Lobos MPAs.
MPA Outreach Assessment: The collaborative worked with CSU Monterey Bay students to engage and educate local dive shops on MPAs, surveying them on best approaches for education and establishing a baseline of knowledge regarding MPAs.
MPA Coloring Book: The Monterey MPA Collaborative has developed a bilingual coloring book featuring species likely to benefit from MPAs. They plan to print the coloring book and distribute it at events and other venues where consumptive and non- consumptive users enter the MPA areas.
MPA Outreach Toolkits: With coordination from the California Marine Sanctuary Foundation, the Monterey MPA Collaborative is developing MPA Outreach Toolkits which will feature update area brochures and laminated maps.
