Where We Work

The Monitoring Enterprise was established to lead development of impartial, science-based, and cost-effective monitoring of the MPAs implemented under the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA). Accordingly, we work primarily in California, focusing on the five MLPA regions: North Coast, North Central Coast, San Francisco Bay, Central Coast and South Coast Regions.

In addition, we have been asked to provide advice or perspectives on MPA monitoring to other jurisdictions, both within the U.S. and elsewhere. Examples to date include Oregon, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil. We welcome these interactions, as they offer us the opportunity not only to share our experiences, but also to learn from others.
