Surfing onto shore on moonlit nights, California Grunion are fish that completely emerge from water during spectacular spawning runs to deposit their eggs on sandy beaches of southern California. Grunion Greeters are citizen scientists dedicated to observation and reporting of these spawning runs along the coast. Coastal municipalities, beach managers, state parks, government agencies and environmental organizations are cooperating to ensure protection of incubating grunion eggs on shore and continued conservation of this remarkable fish and its sandy beach habitat. Grunion Greeter observations are a critical component of this effort.
Grunion Greeters is sponsored by the Beach Ecology Coalition, a 501(c)3 public benefit educational non-profit organization dedicated to healthy beaches.
