Jack O’Neill Talks About Serious Issue at Cowell Beach

We are super stoked that our Chapter leader and Education Coordinator Amber Jones was able to sit down  with Jack O’Neill to talk about the serious water quality issue at Cowells Beach.  This is Cowells Beach’s fifth consecutive year of being on the Heal the Bay’s Beach Bummer List. This year it earns the title of California’s No. 1 most polluted beach. How can Santa Cruz  be known for it’s beaches and surf and have the state’s number 1 polluted beach?

Rescue of an entangled seagull [video]

Story by Amber Jones – I went for a morning kayak with my daughter and friends of ours. We had a wonderful kayak out of the Santa Cruz Harbor to Seal Rock and back. On our way back in the harbor, we came across a seagull that proceeded to follow us as we kayaked passed him. This isn’t typical behavior for a seagull, so we turned around to get a closer look.
