Our mission is To Inspire stewardship and curiosity for the natural world through the exploration of science!
Our broodstock spawned on July 31, 2018, and produced 1,000 baby abalone! This photo was taken on November 1st . They are already up to 5mm in size. We will continue to update their progress as they grow. It will cost $25 per abalone for the next year of growth on the farm in Goleta, CA. Please help sponsor an abalone or 10! Thank you for your support.
The Northern California Kelp Restoration Project is now underway. This massive undertaking requires the work of commercial fisherman to remove purple sea urchins by the THOUSANDS at a cost of $500 per day. A series of unprecedented events has left this ecosystem decimated. Due to starvation, the red abalone fishery was closed in 2017 and without intervention, many more species in this treasured ecosystem might not survive. Luckily, we know how to fix this!
