Raimondi-Carr Lab

Coastal Ecosystems at UC Santa Cruz

We conduct basic and applied ecological and evolutionary research in a variety of coastal ecosystems including kelp forests, the rocky intertidal zone, estuaries, streams and rivers.

Land Acknowledgement

The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
