Recently, the Ocean Protection Council awarded $4 Million to support local MPA’s in Southern California. The areas that will be monitored range from Santa Barbara to the California/Mexico border.
Researchers and scientists from the San Diego area will monitor and survey the MPA’s for up to 3 years with this funding. Different types of data will be taken from the underwater eco-systems, all of which is going towards helping protect marine life and habitats.
