The Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative invites the public to attend an informational presentation designed to orient interested members of the public to the MLPA North Coast Study Region marine protected area planning process, invite questions and solicit input.
Passed into California state law in 1999, the MLPA requires all existing state marine protected areas be reevaluated, and a statewide system be created to protect, among other things, marine life, habitat and ecosystems. The MLPA is currently in the planning stages for the north coast study region, an area that includes state waters from the California-Oregon border to Alder Creek near Point Arena.
