Council seats are occupied by members representing research, conservation, maritime activity, fishing, education, Mann and Sonoma County community-at-large, as well as Federal agency partners. Individual council members act as liaisons between the Sanctuary and their constituent groups. The council holds a minimum of four regular meetings per year, and an annual retreat in the summer.
