Population Connection, Monterey Bay Chapter is part of a national nonprofit organization working to stop population growth and achieve a sustainable balance between people and natural resources.

Our education and advocacy programs aim to influence public policies, attitudes, and behaviors toward lowering our population size, and inform the public about the consequences of continued growth.
