Coastal Monitoring

    Our coastal monitoring projects rely on citizen science: a process where volunteers work with staff to help collect data for near-shore monitoring of local marine habitats. There are two long-term field research projects that depend on volunteers. The Inner Cabrillo Beach survey takes place three times a year, and the Peninsula Shorewatch Survey takes place once a year. Each survey relies on the help of citizens to count, measure and weigh animals. The data collected provides important information on the health and status of local marine life.

If you are interested in volunteering for the next Inner Cabrillo Beach Survey, please call 310-548-7562. No experience is necessary you'll get wet, sandy and fishy but, you'll have fun and learn a lot!
