Save Our Shores

 

Save Our Shores is evolving so that you can better protect your Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

We’re tackling the three most important aspects for a thriving Monterey Bay: clean shores, healthy habitats and living waters. Over the next 10 years, these pillars will guide our current programs and inform the creation of new ones. Explore our 2025 Vision:


Clean
Shores

 DATA / EDUCATION / POLICY / CLEANUPS 

We’re on a mission to flip the beach cleanup model on its head so that over time, they become our last line of defense, not our first. Cleaning up after big messes is not sustainable. Policy, education and behavior modification is!

 SCIENCE / RESTORATION / POLICY 

We’re celebrating the value of our Monterey Bay Sanctuary’s many ecosystems so that our iconic indicator species can thrive. Building public awareness, excitement and action is where it’s at!

 CLIMATE CHANGE / AWARENESS / RESOURCES 

We’re launching a new program to inform our community about how climate change is directly impacting our Monterey Bay Sanctuary. Our goal is to offer everyday solutions so that people do not feel overwhelmed or hopeless about the global crisis. You too can make a difference!
