The Conservation Committee at the Monterey Bay Aquarium invites you to join our
Conservation Action Fund. Through your tax-deductible voluntary payroll deductions, monies
are deposited into a fund that is controlled by both MBARI and MBA staff. These funds are
then spent on local environmental restoration projects (revegetation with native plants,
trail construction, etc,) in Monterey and surrounding counties, but not on support
services such as newsletters, mailers, or office expenses.
In addition to your financial contributions, staff will have opportunities to volunteer
their labor for specific projects funded through the Conservation Action Fund. There may
be two to three projects a year from which you can choose, committing ~ 4-6 hours of your
To receive an allocation from the Conservation Action Fund, projects must be proposed
by a staff member, either with the aquarium or MBARI, though a responsible party with the
conservation organization can complete most of the paperwork. Proposals are reviewed
annually in the fall by staff from both facilities who then recommend projects for
funding, subject to final approval by Julie Packard.
Come July 2nd to learn more about this fund, how to join, and what projects
aquarium staff has funded during the past two years. With your participation this fund can
make additional environmental improvements throughout the Monterey Bay region.
