Article ID: 718916

California's Critical Refuge: Marine Protected Areas

California State University (CSU) Chancellor's Office

California is home to 800 square miles of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that provide refuge to some of the most iconic and diverse marine species. What began as an effort to conserve and protect the state’s marine ecosystems now has the potential to offer critical reference points for measuring the future impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems. Learn how California State University researchers are working to advance marine knowledge and preserve the state's ocean resources.
