Beauty in the Bay

August 06, 2017

California is known for its plunging cliffs and beautiful coastlines, but what many people do not realize is the effort and attention that goes into conserving these gorgeous areas of the West Coast. Much of the California coastline has strict regulations and conservation efforts to keep the ocean thriving and the marine life healthy. The delicate Pacific ecosystem has some of the most unique and crucial elements to the natural environment. The Marine Protected Areas are listed for all to see and specifically target kelp forests, rocky reefs and tide pools, all which help to sustain the environment. But don’t be afraid to check out these delicate, mystical underwater wonders. Get involved while visiting Bodega Bay by setting up a day tour or educational experience and responsibly encounter the beauty that is Bodega Bay.
