Team OCEAN in the MBNMS
(Ocean Conservation Education Action Network)
Since 2000 the Sanctuary's Team OCEAN Program has put trained, knowledgeable naturalists out on the water in sanctuary kayaks, to greet and interact with fellow day kayakers. The naturalists serve as docents for the marine sanctuary, promote respectful wildlife viewing, and protect marine mammals from disturbance. A large percentage of ocean kayakers are visitors to the area and unaware of or undereducated about the sanctuary's existence and sensitive wildlife. Team OCEAN has proven to be a successful program with thousands of contacts per year. Team OCEAN volunteers can be found in Elkhorn slough and along the kelp beds off Cannery Row in Monterey.
