Whale Tail Grants

WHALE TAIL grants support programs that teach California’s children and the general public to value and take action to improve the health of the state’s coast and ocean. Adopt-A-Beach programs, as well as other beach maintenance and coastal habitat restoration projects that have an educational component, are also eligible for these grants. WHALE TAIL grants focus on reaching communities that are poorly served in terms of marine and coastal education.
