The Santa Cruz MPA Collaborative brings together marine protected area experts from local and federal agencies, nonprofits, ocean businesses, scientific institutions, and museums.
Members are working together on three projects to raise awareness of local MPAs. First, they are creating an exhibit for the new Children’s Museum of Discovery in Capitola.
Second, they are working with Natural Bridges State Park on developing a mobile cart that park docents will use to facilitate MPA education. And third, they are working with Mobile Ranger to create five guided tours of Santa Cruz area beaches that highlight MPAs. If you are interested in participating in the Santa Cruz Collaborative, please contact us.
