Although once abundant in the rocky shores of the Californias, black abalone populations have reduced dramatically due to climate change, environmental stressors, disease outbreaks, and fishing. In order to restore natural populations and protect coastal resilience, this experimental project aims to translocate black abalone individuals from high to low density sites. The project was partially funded by the Climate Science Alliance’s Small Grants program from its Binational Working Group. The Small Grant funds were used to document and expand on this translocation experiment and subsequent monitoring of black abalone populations in Baja California.
