  • Giving ‘citizen scientists’ a stake in ocean management | California Sea Grant
    how it is possible to give ocean minded citizens a stake in how we manage our ocean The Reef Check Foundation was established in 1996 and now has locations all over the world to address gaps in citizen science Its California Reef Check program started in 2005 provides valuable data for monitoring the network of MPAs in California we have 124 MPAs in state waters one of the most comprehensive networks in the world Reef Check volunteers collect data underwater and compile fish counts species identification and other information into a database allowing scientists to evaluate how California s marine organisms are responding to marine protected areas climate change and more This data also allows the OPC and our partners to be better informed managers OPC has provided funding to organizations like Reef Check and I was able to incorporate the training into my fellowship so I could see this program in action In July I spent two days at the California Academy of Science in San Francisco learning how to scientifically evaluate different organisms and be a safe scientific diver I dove for marine labs at Stanford University s Hopkins Marine Station during graduate school and this provided a valuable refresher but it was also a great training for those who had never done underwater science I was impressed by the thoroughness of the course as well as the motivated recreational divers who showed up to learn how they can help monitor the kelp forests The second part of the course involved diving in Monterey to test our skills and ensure that we could correctly identify species sizes and quantities of different organisms It was a blast The team at Reef Check was supportive fun and most importantly safe We not only learned how to be conscientious dive buddies

  • The Reason We Need to be Preparing for Climate Change | California Sea Grant
    We were there to share information to collaborate and to learn In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions attendees discussed steps that must be taken to protect against climate change impacts consequences of increasing temperatures extreme storms and droughts and sea level rise As a California Sea Grant State Fellow with the California Coastal Commission I ve been thinking a lot about sea level rise As sea level rises and more frequent or severe storms threaten coastal regions communities will face the need for emergency services response and recovery capacity as well as adaptation preparedness measures to protect coastal resources including habitats public access and recreational opportunities I organized and moderated a session for the conference entitled Finding Common Ground Integrating Nature Infrastructure and People into Sea Level Rise Planning to address this very issue Speakers from Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA the Coastal Commission Marin County the American Society of Adaptation Professionals ASAP and the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve talked about how they are planning for sea level rise We gave people a chance to learn about the sea level rise planning process and then work in small groups to grapple with real world examples from county tribal and natural resource agency perspectives While climate change may be construed as a slow moving crisis the impacts will not be Extreme storms and massive floods will have immediate effects sea level rise will only exacerbate these impacts How are we going to build and sustain our communities on the coast to be resilient to these forces How can our communities work to prepare by making smarter decisions about what to build where How can we balance environmental protection with private property rights While we don t have all the answers the conversation has certainly begun Connecting climate change
