Marine Research to Drive Conservation and Inspire New Leaders

The mission of the California Ocean Alliance is to conduct world-class marine research which leads directly to sound policy decisions that safeguard the oceans and allow marine mammals to thrive into the next century. Our vision is for COA scientists to be directly integrated with those we strive to affect,  including students, community leaders, educators, and decision makers.
