Channelkeeper monitors the health of marine habitats in the Santa Barbara Channel, including kelp forests, eelgrass meadows and Marine Protected Areas.
Santa Barbara Channelkeeper works to protect and restore the Santa Barbara Channel and its watersheds through science-based advocacy, education, field work and enforcement.
Santa Barbara Channelkeeper educates citizens about practices that degrade water quality or harm aquatic habitats, and provide solutions to help protect them.
Channelkeeper conducts routine monitoring to measure the quality of water in local creeks and beaches, and we share our data with the public and government agencies.
Channelkeeper advocates for stronger policies to protect local creeks, beaches and wetlands, and to protect and restore aquatic habitats, both in the ocean and in our streams and river.
