California Ocean Science Trust and its partners invite members of the North Central Coast ocean community to share your perspectives on monitoring local habitats (e.g., kelp forests, beaches, etc.), fisheries, and/or coastal and ocean uses, as well as the types of monitoring currently taking place in the region (both marine protected area (MPA) and non-MPA related).
Your insights will help us better understand local monitoring interests and priorities, and will inform community conversations about planning for a partnership-based approach to long-term monitoring in the area. We deeply appreciate your constructive and thoughtful feedback.
To learn more about MPA monitoring in the North Central Coast, including key findings from the first five years of monitoring, visit the North Central Coast program page on OceanSpaces.org (http://oceanspaces.org/monitoring/regions/north-central-coast). For questions related to this questionnaire, MPA monitoring, or for additional information about Ocean Science Trust, please contact Dina at email@example.com or 510.350.3464.
Coordinators and managers of North Central Coast monitoring projects are also invited to complete the “North Central Coast Monitoring Survey” (http://oceanspaces.org/monitoring/regions/north-central-coast/long-term)!
