The San Luis Obispo Collaborative brings together non-profits, educational institutions, fishermen, and local government agencies to share resources for local MPA outreach, enforcement, and monitoring.
To increase visitors’ understanding of MPAs, the Collaborative worked with Visitor TV and San Luis Obispo State Parks to produce two videos highlighting MPAs as beautiful places to explore while visiting San Luis Obispo county. These videos will be aired multiple times daily for two years in two key outlets: Visitor TV’s Hotel Network and Visitor TV’s San Luis Obispo Airport Network. Additionally, the Collaborative has put together a “lessons learned” document to guide other collaboratives’ work as they pursue video projects.
