Ocean Protection Council
In the face of major challenges to California's coast and ocean, this Strategic Plan offers four Goals to guide California’s efforts over the next five years. The California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) developed this strategic plan to advance focused, high-value interagency collaboration that is needed to meet these goals and achieve the collective vision. This document is a bold and comprehensive plan comprised of objectives, targets, and actions in each goal area. This plan establishes an ambitious collective vision for protecting the intrinsic, cultural, ecological, and economic benefits provided by California’s coast and ocean. OPC looks forward to working with state agencies, other governmental partners, tribes, and all stakeholders to ensure California advances its global leadership protecting our state’s world-renowned coast and ocean.
