When you join the Save Our Shores team, you’re part of a community of educators, biologists, community builders, philanthropists, and ocean advocates who have a deep appreciation and respect for the Monterey Bay. Our staff, board members, interns, partners, and volunteers unite together to ensure the Sanctuary thrives today and for generations to come.


Sanctuary Stewards are our crew of dedicated certified volunteers who go through training and play an integral role in our organization! The next course will take place in October. Please check for details later in the year!
