10th California Islands Symposium

November 6, 2023 - November 10, 2023

The Symposia have been held every five years (or so) since 1965 and address the variety of complex environmental, sustainability, cultural, and historical issues found across the California Channel Islands. Presentations cover a wide scope of subjects including marine and terrestrial ecology, biology, botany, history, archeology, geology, oceanography, and climatology.

This is a time of great challenge and opportunity for the California Islands and surrounding water of the Pacific. Multiple stressors, including warming oceans, introduced species, pollution, and resource extraction are impacting marine and island ecosystems. The 10th California Islands Symposium presents an opportunity for key stakeholders and managers to discuss and address these threats and potential solutions, It is also an important forum to highlight the extensive ongoing efforts and successes to restore, protect, and sustain the marine and terrestrial ecosystems unique to the California Islands.
