July 20, 2011

The California Ocean Protection Council has awarded $4 million to support the initial monitoring of newly designated marine protected areas along the southern California coast. The projects, three of which are headquartered at UC Santa Barbara, will collect baseline information for up to three years. They will target marine life and habitats –– as well as commercial and recreational activities –– inside and outside the protected areas from Point Conception in Santa Barbara County to the California/Mexico Border.
