Passed into California state law in 1999, the Marine Life Protection Act(MLPA) requires a statewide system of marine protected areas be created to protect, among other things, marine life, habitat, and ecosystems. A regional approach is being used in the MLPA Initiative process, where California's 1,100-mile coastline has been divided into five study regions.
The south coast study region (state waters from Point Conception in Santa Barbara County south to the California border with Mexico, including offshore islands) is in the initial stages and the planning process is expected to be complete by December 2009.
