Contributed Snapshot Reports


In addition to the ten state-funded marine protected area (MPA) baseline monitoring projects in California’s South Coast, other scientific efforts help advance our understanding of the region. Partner organizations were invited to develop short summaries of how their work informs our understanding of ecological and socioeconomic conditions inside and outside of South Coast MPAs. Links to these Contributed Snapshots are provided below:

These contributed snapshot reports, and the entire South Coast Snapshot Series, provides a foundation for rigorous science-informed decisions in the region. They are key ingredients in the State of the California South Coast report, which provides a comprehensive ecological and socioeconomic baseline characterization of the region.
