BENCHSIDE AT BODEGA MARINE LABORATORY
For more than 50 years, the Bodega Marine Laboratory has been at the forefront of ocean and coastal sciences. The land and waters surrounding the facility are a world-class research site. First protected in 1965, they became the Bodega Marine Reserve in 1970.
Here, along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, UC Davis researchers find solutions to the challenges that threaten the health of marine ecosystems. Research expertise in ecology, oceanography, ocean health and habitat and species restoration informs public policy and sustainable business practices both at home in California as well as on the national and global stages.
This spirited history, culture and character make the Bodega Marine Laboratory an unforgettable and immersive place to see marine science in action.
