Yesterday,  December 15, the California Fish and Game Commission met in Santa Barbara to vote on the adoption of Southern California MPAs. Thanks to the support and voice of the people, the Commission voted 3-2 in favor of marine conservation. We didn’t get 100% of what we wished for, but we did achieve more than we ever thought possible!  Southern California now has a strong, science-based network of MPAs, including protection at Point Loma and Imperial Beach as well as a conservation area at Swami's

Thank you everyone for your active support
