Reef Check, a worldwide organization dedicated to monitoring the health of reef ecosystems, has been busy here in California.  They are training volunteer divers to study some of the coast’s most remote marine protected areas in Big Sur, the Channel Islands, and off the rugged North Coast.

Reef Check staff are active participants in several MPA Collaboratives, and their Northern California Regional Manager Anna Neumann co-chairs the Mendocino Collaborative.
