Donate to California’s Statewide Network of
Marine Protected Areas

California is the first state in the nation to establish a network of MPAs – similar to national parks, forests and wilderness areas on land – to protect and restore ocean habitats and increase the health, productivity and resilience of ocean ecosystems. The network was completed in 2012 and created over 120 underwater refuges along the California coast. CMSF is providing critical support in the implementation of the MLPA.

In close collaboration with partner organizations, the California Marine Sanctuary Foundation has played a crucial leadership role in support of California’s MPAs. Our accomplishments include:

  1. Building a consortium of statewide collaborative MPA partners;

  2. Developing a comprehensive suite of MPA education and community outreach products;

  3. Creating sustainable MPA training programs that leverage existing resources and serve as models for statewide implementation.
