Do you enjoy long walks on the beach and helping to promote ocean conservation? Channelkeeper is looking for dedicated volunteers to help us record and track human activities in and adjacent to Santa Barbara’s Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) through our MPA Watch program.The data we collect provides important information to understand how people are using MPAs and helps inform MPA management. Becoming an MPA Watch volunteer is easy and fun.
Our next volunteer training workshop is on Thursday, October 19 at 6:30pm at UCSB in Bren Hall Room 4016. Snacks and drinks will be provided! If you want to attend or learn more about MPA Watch, please email or call us at 805.563.3377 ext. 4. Every MPA Watch volunteer will receive a free Channelkeeper t-shirt, and volunteers that complete 10 surveys will receive an additional exciting treat!
