Join the movement to reduce human disturbance to coastal and marine wildlife. Sign up for the 6th Annual Central California Coastal Wildlife Disturbance Web Symposium and help collaborate for the conservation of our coastal wildlife. This year we go virtual!
Be a part of the collaboration for conservation of our coastal wildlife. Join other wildlife professionals at this unique symposium – in our 6th year we will be coming to you as a webinar! In the spirit of collaboration, you will learn of the latest efforts to mitigate human-caused disturbance to an array of coastal species, workshop real-world issues, and network with people from agencies and organizations throughout the state and beyond who are working to protect coastal wildlife.
The goal of this symposium is to maximize our shared efforts to mitigate human-caused disturbance to coastal wildlife. In this setting, we will work together to foster agreement upon common strategies and messaging, create a forum to share ideas, celebrate innovation, and support collaboration. Working together to share knowledge and pool resources, we can make each of our jobs easier and our efforts more successful!

- Exciting guest speakers (view and print this year's agenda below)
- Current wildlife-disturbance-related efforts across taxa
