Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring: Trends and Synthesis
This project receives support from all participating research groups, which provide the resources and personnel necessary for sustaining a project of this magnitude. We would like to give special acknowledgement to four groups that have provided generous, long-term funding, without which the project would not be possible: BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), NPS (National Parks Service), The David & Lucile Packard Foundation, and United States Navy.
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is the bureau in the Department of the Interior responsible for managing development of the nation's offshore energy and mineral resources in an environmentally sound manner. These resources include offshore wave and wind energy, oil and gas, and marine minerals.
The fundamental purpose of the National Park Service is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of this and future generations.
For more than 50 years, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation has worked with partners around the world to improve the lives of children, enable the creative pursuit of science, advance reproductive health, and conserve and restore the earth’s natural systems.
