Should the largest proposed boundary be approved, we'll be weaving an essential link between the existing Monterey Bay and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. This connection ensures a continuous shield against harmful activities like oil and gas extraction and seabed mining, providing safe havens for seabirds and shorebirds, like the federally threatened Western Snowy Plover and Brown Pelican.
Your commitment to the coastal protection is a testament to the power of community-driven conservation. Thank you for being the steadfast advocates our coastal communities deserve.
