The Final Dispatches: Oregon’s Marine Reserves

An Ecosystem Left Intact

This past summer, TRFF board member Chris Rurik, along with Helen Helfand, traveled the full length of Oregon’s stunning coastline (nearly 400 miles of narrow roads!) to observe and write about Oregon’s newly designated marine reserves, which were created in a truly collaborative manner with community input.

Now, the fourth and fifth dispatches are live on National Geographic’s Ocean Views blog. Join Chris and Helen as they wrap up their exploration of marine reserves — areas that, starting now, will last indefinitely and are free to evolve at their own pace.
