California's Coastal Biodiversity and Marine Protected Areas: What Would You Want To Know?
Imagine you could reliably estimate any current or predicted future property of California's coastal ecosystems to facilitate your professional and/or recreational activity, what would it be? What would you want to know about biodiversity within and outside Marine Protected Areas and across California’s coast? Are you interested in how people interact with coastal ecosystems, where and when they go, and what they choose to observe?

Citizen science data collected via Snapshot Cal Coast (https://www.calacademy.org/calcoast) and associated initiatives, and aggregated via iNaturalist (www.inaturalist.org) are enabling us to tackle previously difficult to answer questions about California's coastal biodiversity and Marine Protected Areas. What are YOUR unanswered questions?

Who Are You?
Help us find out a little bit about the nature of your professional and recreational activity and your relationship and connection to the California coast and Marine Protected Areas

What would you want to know?
Help us identify the questions you would like answered about the abundance, distribution and trends in biodiversity within and outside Marine Protected Areas and along the California Coast
Imagine that, in order to facilitate your professional and/or recreational activity, you could reliably estimate any current or predicted future property of coastal biodiversity and ecosystems (e.g. a species' increasing/declining population abundance, the distribution of a set of organisms, the diversity of an area or a time period) and of people's recreational use of these areas (e.g. how many people visit certain areas at certain times and what they choose to observe). What would you want to know?
