Junior High/High School Monitoring Programs

Middle and High School Monitoring Programs

Students and teachers are monitoring the shores of our National Marine Sanctuaries through the LiMPETS Program.

The LiMPETS network is directed by a collaborative effort among California’s National Marine Sanctuaries, Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association and others. FMSA is a vital partner in the LiMPETS network. In addition to coordinating monitoring activities in the Gulf of the Farallones region, FMSA supports the statewide LiMPETS network by leading the development of curriculum, website, database interface, training materials, teacher workshops, and other crucial infrastructure pieces that let the LiMPETS project easily be adopted and replicated throughout the region.
