Marine Protected Areas–totally worth the effort

Check out this brief video on the importance of Marine Protected Areas. It’s out just in time for tomorrow’s Fish and Game Commission, at which the fate of the North Central Coast MPAs will be decided! We’re routing for the Integrated Preferred Alternative, recommended by the region’s Blue Ribbon Task Force. It’s a compromise between environmental and economic needs–preserving a large area of ocean, but also leaving plenty for the fishermen who make their living off it.

Also, check out the other videos on Ocean California’s YouTube site for some interesting facts and inspiring footage.

The video is produced by Doug McConnell.

About Allison

I am the new Executive Director of The Otter Project in Monterey, California! Originally from the Bay Area, I went to school in San Diego, and came back north to Monterey for graduate school, where I found my calling: saving sea otters! Working for The Otter Project combines my passion for environmental policy with my love of animals. When not advocating for sea otters, I enjoy yoga, volunteer wildlife rehab, reading, and spending time with my cat Alyssa, who, for the record, I did not name. I have been with The Otter Project since November of 2007.
