SPECIAL NOTICES

Flipper Dippers' General Meeting Change Notice!
There will be a Virtual General Meeting on October 21


Monterey Bay Kelp Forests - The Giant Giant Kelp Restoration Project

Kelp are being clear cut by an explosion of purple (and red) sea urchins. Without their usual predators, since the sea star wasting disease wiped out the large sunflower sea stars in 2013, and warming marine water trends, our near shore ecosystem is turning from kelp forests into urchin barrens, 2019.

See this informative video report: Monterey Bay Kelp Forests
