SoCal’s Urban Ocean in 2050

18 May

Southern Californians love their beaches. Residents swim, surf, snorkel, scuba dive, and spend many a leisurely hour enjoying the Pacific Coast. Aside from the recreational fun, Southern California’s coast is also an economic engine. It is home to the two largest container ports in the nation that collectively provide thousands of jobs for people throughout the Los Angeles region.

For better or worse, Southern California residents co-exist with the marine life that inhabits the coast. But what will our coastline will look like 20, 30, or 40 years from now?

That’s the question that Aquarium of the Pacific President Jerry Schubel is asking – and he wants your feedback.

The Aquatic Forum is coming up in July, and the Aquarium will be leading a discussion among ocean experts, policymakers, and a diverse group of stakeholders to develop potential scenarios for the Southern California urban ocean in the year 2050.

Why wait until July to help shape the future of the California coastline? You can share your ideas and provide your input now by posting a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
