Horseshoe Cove

Webcam Improvement Project

In October 2023, we embarked on a fundraising project to replace the webcam in Horseshoe Cove on the Bodega Marine Reserve with a live-streaming, high-definition model, installed on a high quality tower. This project was fully supported by the crowdfunding effort, and as of April 2024, we are in the process of bringing the live streaming camera at Horseshoe Cove online. We couldn’t be more grateful to the community of supporters who have made this project possible.
