Team OCEAN

Marine wildlife are plentiful and easily seen in Monterey Bay.  It is a nature lover's paradise. However, many visitors are unaware that close encounters with sensitive wildlife, such as seals, sea otters, and birds, cause disturbances that are problematic for marine life.

 

CMSF, in partnership with MBNMS and MBNMSF, supports the Team OCEAN Kayaker Outreach Program, a team of dedicated on-the-water volunteer docents that foster an understanding and appreciation for the California coast among visitors, documenting disturbances, while promoting respectful wildlife viewing and protecting marine life from human disturbance.

Monterey Bay is a nature lover's paradise where marine wildlife is plentiful and easily seen. However, many visitors are unaware that close encounters with sensitive wildlife such as seals, sea otters, and birds, cause disturbances that are problematic for marine life. Animals can become less fearful of humans and pass

on diseases, young seals or otter pups can be abandoned by their mothers if humans approach too closely, or pets can be fatally harmed if they come into contact with marine wildlife.
