Our work focuses on advancing MPA monitoring in California, including developing scientific and practical assessments of the changing condition of ocean ecosystems and the performance of the emerging statewide MPA network.

Building on this foundation, we are also engaged in a number of other initiatives, from developing new frameworks to monitor climate effects on temperate ecosystems to creating a new online social platform. Each of our initiatives leverages our work on California's MPAs and, in turn, strengthens the tools and approaches that are available to adaptively manage and steward our ocean resources.
