MPA Signage Project at May Coastal Commission Meeting
The California Marine Sanctuary Foundation has been working throughout the state to create interpretive and regulatory signs with a wide variety of stakeholders. The Ocean Protection Council is seeking a consolidated Coastal Development Permit from the California Coastal Commission to install these signs to increase the enjoyment and knowledge of citizens and visitors to Marine Protected Areas.

In Memory of Dr. Takashi Hattori
Dr. Takashi Hattori devoted over 40 years of service to the Pacific Grove Hyperbaric Chamber, helping more than 375 patients, all on a voluntary basis, and earning him the nickname "Dive Doc." A longtime resident of the Monterey Peninsula, Tak's leadership and can-do attitude were responsible for bringing online the large chamber that is still in use today including its recent revitalization. His selfless devotion to this community and his warm smile will be remembered by all those he touched over the years. To honor his legacy, his family has asked that donations be made to the Pacific Grove Hyperbaric Chamber fund, managed by the California Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
