Support us in protecting the Sanctuary

Collaborate with us to create impactful initiatives in conservation, education, and sustainable tourism. Join our mission to protect and celebrate the natural wonders of Monterey Bay.

National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary

We donate a portion of each ticket sale to create educational conservation exhibits at the new Marine Sanctuary Ocean Discovery Center opening Spring 2012 in Santa Cruz.

Our relationship with the Sanctuary goes way back to when Dorris served as the original Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Education Chair and Council Advisor from 1992-8 when the Sanctuary was newly created. We are proud to support the Sanctuary’s efforts to protect our precious marine resources through education, conservation and research.
