Dive into Central Coast Marine Protected Areas:
The Ocean Connects Us All
Dive into Central Coast Marine Protected Areas with California State Park Interpreter Robin Hazard! MPAs are much like underwater parks. These fascinating underwater worlds are full of surprises and wonder...so let the adventure begin!
Take a trip to the beautiful San Luis Obispo coast! Just like land parks, MPAs allow for the protection of entire ecosystems and provide amazing spaces to play!
Students will discover how plastic inevitably ends up in the ocean as well as how it effects the wildlife and habitats that make up our big blue sea. They will also explore ways that we can all be a part of the solution! Through simple daily changes, we can all make a big difference in the health of our beautiful blue Earth. Through this better understanding of our ocean, we are better able to protect it.
Enjoy this interactive, virtual journey and learn ways that we can protect the ocean every single day. Discover how the ocean connects us all!
