administration of the Channel Islands Marine Protected Areas Network
requires close coordination with the State of California, the
Channel Islands National Park, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Sanctuary
Advisory Council, the University of California and other academic
institutions, and non-governmental organizations. The Sanctuary
tracks its efforts and those of its partners to 1) guide MPA managers
to effectively administer the MPA network; 2) identify long-term
trends in natural resources, economic impacts, public awareness
and compliance; and 3) detail administrative capacity, including
administrative challenges, such as funding needs.

outreach, cooperative enforcement and community involvement web
