As we count down 2016 we want to address some Frequently Asked Questions to further public education and understanding of our Proposed Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary. Looking forward to your support and help by signing our petition and sharing it.
Protect California’s Central Coast!
California’s Central Coast is an area of extraordinary biodiversity. Endangered whales, dolphins, sea otters, seals, pelicans and other wildlife thrive here, feeding on rich nutrient upwellings. The new Chumash National Marine Sanctuary would stretch from Gaviota, near the recent oil spill, to Cambria, terminus of the Monterey Bay NMS. Sanctuary status for this area would prohibit oil development, seismic testing, dumping of agriculture wastewater, and other threats. Comprehensive ecosystem management would ensure the health of the marine habitat.
