This year the Ocean Science Trust (OST) team tackled pressing issues, built new bridges, brought people together, improved student futures, and much more. As we prepare for an inspiring year ahead with new team members and new ventures, 2022 will be marked as not only a year of great success in our mission, but also a landmark in our 20-plus year history. We celebrate the passage of Assembly Bill (AB) 2287, the California Ocean Resources Stewardship Act (CORSA), which updates our founding legislation and reaffirms the essential role of independent science in spurring action on critical coastal and ocean issues.
To illustrate the reach and impact of Ocean Science Trust in 2022, we’ve collated a short list of top highlights and initiatives. We are grateful for our community and partners, and hope you will support us as we continue to bridge the gap between cutting-edge scientific research and sound ocean management.
