      California and the Ocean: Three Perspectives on the Future

      The Aquarium will host an evening keynote presentation to kick off a forum on the future of decommissioned oil rigs off the coast of California. Three leaders in ocean conservation and management will discuss their perspectives on California’s unique relationship with the ocean and what we can do to ensure a healthy ocean in the future, and one that benefits society economically.

      California’s offshore oil platforms have been in places for many decades, but they will reach the end of their operational lifespans within the next fifteen years. Federal and state agencies face several questions as they decide how to proceed with decommissioning, as the platforms have formed rich biological communities underwater.

      Famed oceanographer and explorer Dr. Sylvia Earle, California State Controller Betty Yee, and Ocean Protection Council Executive Director Mark Gold will present three perspectives to open the forum, which will be held over the following two days.
