With our research and conservation efforts, we aim to save the short-fin mako shark here in San Diego, CA. 

We conduct bi-monthly behavioral and monitoring research on our local pinnipeds (seals and sea lions). If you would like to get involved with this campaign, email us.

Currently monitoring our Giant Kelp beds and assessing urchin populations in San Diego County. If kelp beds shift towards urchin barrens, we are ready to act to restore healthy Giant Kelp beds.

Join us every year for our Blue Cove Paddle Out to raise awareness of the 20,000 dolphins slaughtered in Japan every year. A recommended donation of $5-10 is greatly appreciated and donated to Dolphin Project. Pledge with us to never support a dolphinarium, as they belong wild and free.

Join us as we clean up San Diego county! Clean ups sponsored by Barrel Bag and Guayaki. Due to COVID-19, masks are mandatory to participate.

Next Reef and Beach Clean Up:

The Southern Resident Orcas are starving. Chinook/King Salmon constitutes 80% of their diet.  The solution? Breach the lower four Snake River dams! Click "Act Now" below, and follow @pnwprotectors on Instagram for more ways to help. #WeAreTheOrca

Speak up for the voiceless wild salmon that are heavily struggling to survive against the effects of fish farms in the Discovery Islands of British Columbia.

Read our blog post to take action and help save wild salmon.

Thanks to our team, we are setting up fishing line receptacles on piers throughout San Diego County, in order to prevent fishing line/lures from ending up in our oceans. Many marine mammals, like this Californian Sea Lion pup, get entangled/hooked in fishing line each year. Donate to our efforts to reduce monofilament line pollution!
