In February, Blue Endeavors hosted Reef Check’s Dan Abbott and Joshua Russo, President of the Watermen’s Alliance, for a deep discussion on California’s North Coast Purple Urchin Situation. The talk, held in-person in Alameda, was recorded and featured the latest news on North Coast urchin removal efforts.

n honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, California Natural Resources Agency hosted a number of California resources-related talks that you can tune in to at home! Reef Check’s Tristin McHugh was invited to speak about the exciting Kelp Restoration Program that we are launching in Northern California, and provide some background and context pertaining to that effort.
