SANCTUARY STEWARDS

         Save Our Shores started the Sanctuary Stewards program in 1996 to further engage members of the Monterey Bay community in issues surrounding marine conservation and advocacy. These dedicated volunteers are at the core of our organization. Stewards are highly trained volunteers who have gone through an intensive four week course and are qualified to represent Save Our Shores throughout the community.
