Rangers in the Rocky Intertidal

CABR is concerned about the effects that climate change will have on its marine seascape, a place visited by a quarter of a million visitors each year, and a crown jewel of the greater San Diego area. Many marine organisms will be threatened by the warming and acidification of seawater globally as more carbon dioxide makes its way into the atmosphere and by extension, the surface ocean. In order to effectively manage its rocky intertidal habitat and prepare for anticipated ecosystem changes, CABR is working to better understand potential impacts by directly measuring water quality parameters that will be affected most in the years to come.”
