SPECIAL NOTICES

Flipper Dippers' General Meeting Notice
TBD: Dippers are now able to meet in person starting this month or Join Us Online!


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.

See this informative video report: Monterey Bay Kelp Forests
