Marine Protected Areas Soon to be Adopted by Fish and Game Commission

The Surfrider Foundation has been working on the Marine Life Protection Act in southern California for nearly 2 years, and the final "adoption process" of protected areas is coming to close.

Last year, Surfrider Foundation recommended that Fish and Game Commission adopt the Integrated Preferred Alternative (IPA) map.  The Commission has taken over a year to review all the maps before them and has to chosen the IPA as the most feasible map.  The IPA will now officially go forward in environmental review (i.e through a state law called the California Environmental Quality Act CEQA).

It is important the Commission still hear from individual about the importance of implementing the IPA.  The Surfrider Foundation created this action alert that will go directly to the Commissioners,  please take a few seconds to sign and share with your friends.  Go here to sign.
