The Golden Gate MPA Collaborative has successfully brought together environmental NGOs, agencies, fishermen, scientists, aquaria and vessel captains interested in raising awareness of marine protected areas in Marin and San Francisco counties, including the Farallon Islands.
Collaborative members are engaging boat captains and docents in an ambassador program targeting visitors to Point Reyes and the Farallones. Working with these ambassadors, the collaborative is developing a map-based brochure that will be used as an outreach tool, with the goal of increasing awareness and compliance of local marine protected areas.
