Have you been feeling like your voice isn’t heard when it comes to environmental issues? Are you a recreational fisherman, scuba diver, boater, or just a fan of beautiful beaches?
Here is an opportunity for you to learn more, and speak your mind about underwater parks. The Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) requires the state to examine and redesign California’s system of marine protected areas. Work is currently underway in our region of Southern California (the South Coast region.) The process involved in creating these marine protected areas, or underwater parks, includes opportunities for the public to be informed and involved. Through July 13, there are multiple opportunities for you to visit informational stations, review and comment on draft marine protected area proposals, provide input on particular areas of interest and ask questions of staff and regional stakeholders.
For more information about the Marine Life Protection Act, visit their website.
