Hope Spot - Gulf of the Farallones: support a wide variety of sea life

About Hope Spot - Gulf of the Farallones: support a wide variety of sea life
The Gulf of the Farallones Hope Spot doubles as a National Marine Sanctuary, which stretches to the north and west of San Francisco Bay and encompasses 3,295 square miles from the Farallon Islands up to Point Arena. This region includes one of North America’s most productive upwelling zones in which cold, nutrient-rich waters rise from the deep and support a wide variety of sea life including 25 endangered or threatened species, 36 marine mammal species, over a quarter-million breeding seabirds and one of the planet’s most substantial great white shark populations. Stanford University marine biologist Barbara Block refers to the area as “our blue Serengeti” because nutrient-rich zones serve as “watering holes” that attract a wide range of marine organisms.
About Mission Blue
Mission Blue is an initiative of the Sylvia Earle Alliance to ignite public support for the protection of Hope Spots through the creation of a global network of marine protected areas to safeguard 20% of the ocean by 2020.
