COAST News Intro

​COAST is pleased to announce the launch of our Summer 2018 Internship Program. We have 15 internship positions open this summer ranging from working with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) to culturing of abalone to helping a national marine sanctuary explore connections to National Forests. We have new hosts who have joined the program in addition to returning hosts who have offered incredibly rewarding internships in previous years. Students from a broad diversity of backgrounds, such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Geology, Resource Management and Policy, and more, are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 5, 2018, 5:00 pm PST.

Over nine million dollars in Proposition 1 funding for projects benefiting California’s ocean and coast is available through the CA Ocean Protection Council, and $6M in Proposition 84 funding for scientific research projects that directly support the OPC’s priorities is available through the California and USC Sea Grant programs.
Dr. Joshua Reece (Biology) and a team of experts from Fresno State are collaborating on a CSU COAST supported project that integrates campus classes with research in Morro Bay. The project aims to assess beach nourishment and any impacts to invertebrate, plant, and bird biodiversity as well as sediment characteristics and stratigraphy.
