Marine Educators Regional Alliance

Community Focused Environmental Resource and Management Information for the Channel Islands Region

The mission of the Marine Educators' Regional Alliance (MERA), coordinated by the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CINMS), is to act as a catalyst to focus attention on the extraordinary diversity of the transition zone between the southern and northern California coastal and marine ecosystems. MERA will facilitate development and implementation of educational programs that foster stewardship, understanding of and support for, as well as participation in, the ecologically sustainable use and enjoyment of this special region.
