Marine Protected Areas in the MBNMS
The Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) directs the state to reevaluate and redesign California's system of marine protected areas (MPAs). This map portrays both the Central Coast MPAs (implemented in 2007) and the North Central Coast MPAs (implemented in 2009) within the MBNMS.
