That network is now complete, providing marine life protected areas all along our coast. Speakers, presentations, interactive activities and handouts will be available so visitors can learn more about how these MPAs can preserve and improve California coastal marine resources. Similar activities are being held the same day at partner marine science centers: Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach; Ocean Institute, Dana Point; Birch Aquarium/Museum at Scripps, La Jolla; SeaLife Aquarium, Carlsbad; Santa Monica Pier Aquarium; Ty-Warner Sea Center in Santa Barbara; and Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence - West.
