Beach Watch volunteer shoreline monitoring was developed and launched by the marine sanctuary in 1993 under the auspices of NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. Beach Watch uses highly trained “citizen scientists” from all walks of life to conduct regular shoreline surveys spanning 150 miles of coastline from Point Año Nuevo to Bodega Head. The volunteers have also conducted special wildlife surveys during several oil spills. Since 1996, the nonprofit Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association has managed Beach Watch data and volunteers. Find out more about the sanctuary and its volunteer programs and events at FARALLONES and NOAA.
