California is invested in action on ocean acidification

 

The State of California is now undertaking development of an Ocean Acidification Action Plan under the leadership of the California Ocean Protection Council and in cooperation with the California Ocean Science Trust. This policy and management action plan will be one of the first of its kind, and is being developed within the framework of the International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification (OA Alliance), a global partnership founded in 2016 to assist governments in taking meaningful action to anticipate, mitigate, and adapt to the significant changes to the chemistry of the world’s oceans that are now occurring as a result of carbon dioxide emissions.

Below are a few of the ongoing initiatives funded by the California Ocean Protection Council following the release of the West Coast Panel recommendations and actions.
