MPA Collaborative


The Monterey MPA Collaborative draws its diverse membership from the rich scientific, academic, nonprofit and agency community centered in Monterey County.

Recent Projects

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. Additionally, the collaborative has 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.

Current Projects
