Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) play important roles in biodiversity conservation, the sustainability of ecosystem services, ecosystem resilience in the face of global and ocean scale influences and as both a safeguard against management Marine protected areas book and uncertainty, and as control regions to benchmark human impacts in unprotected areas.
The Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) was passed in by the California Legislature, directing the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to redesign California’s existing system of marine protected areas (MPAs) to increase its coherence and effectiveness for protecting the state’s marine life, habitats, and ecosystems.
