Protecting California's Ocean

The California coast is breathtakingly beautiful and also plays a vital part in our economy. With almost 70% of California’s citizens living in coastal communities, the Ocean Protection Council (OPC) helps to ensure that California maintains healthy, resilient, and productive ocean and coastal ecosystems for the benefit of current and future generations. So what exactly does the Ocean Protection Council do? In part one of our two-part series, we talk with Catherine Kuhlman, Executive Director of the Ocean Protection Council, to learn more about the OPC’s unique role in protecting California’s coast and ocean.

Everyday Action: No matter where you live in California you can impact the ocean. We can all take action every day to help keep our ocean a healthy and thriving place. One person can make a difference. Join a beach clean-up, or conduct your own. Use re-usable bags, carry your own mug, and follow the Ocean Protection Council’s work.
