Gulf Of The Farallones And Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary Boundary Modifications


Resolution 12-07.10

WHEREAS the Northern California coast just south of Bodega Head is already protected by the Gulf of the Farallones and the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries, and

WHEREAS the biologically productive Sonoma and Southern Mendocino Coast deserves similar protection from oil spills and land-based pollution including protection of the rich estuaries of the Russian and Gualala Rivers, and

WHEREAS adjusting the northern boundary for Cordell Bank will add an area called the Bodega Canyon, the vortex for much of the nutrient-rich upwelling's along the Northern California Coast, that also deserves similar protection,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party supports extending the boundaries of the Gulf of the Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary to afford beneficial protections to the Sonoma and Southern Mendocino Coast, at the earliest possible date.
