The Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation has held several trainings for docents, educators and public audiences to increase understanding and awareness of benefits of the California network of marine protected areas. These workshop materials are now available for your review and download. We have provided the presentations as a PDF document with either an associated audio or video file when possible. Our intent is to provide these materials so that they can easily renew memories of the content discussed and to aid in the creation of training sessions within your own institution or organization.
A one-day training event in the north central coast designed to increase understanding of what MPAs are, the science supporting them, and local perspectives.
A one-day workshop held in early 2011 designed to increase the understanding and awareness of the benefits of California’s network of MPAs and provide tools for communicating with the public.
A one-day meeting with Southern California Aquarium Collaborative partners, NGO’s, and North and Central Coast California partners to discuss the implementation of education and outreach efforts for South Coast MPAs.
This series of workshops in 2008 and 2009 were designed to provide content on the interpretation, communication, and message framing for MPAs; the science of MPAs; and the political, economic, and cultural significance of MPAs.
