• SPCA Rescues Rhinoceros Auklets

    The SPCA for Monterey County Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center is caring for two emaciated Rhinoceros Aucklets.

    The first Rhinoceros Aucklet, a juvenile, was found on Carmel Beach. The second, an adult in breeding plumage, was found on the recreation trail near Monterey Bay Kayaks in Monterey. When rescued, the two birds were emaciated but alert and fairly strong. Skilled SPCA staff are providing oral fluids and nutrition via feeding tubes. The adult has recovered enough to eat fish and yesterday started enjoying time in warm water pool.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
