Your support allows us keep protecting our ocean planet, from summit to sea.
We address the most serious threats facing our ocean—climate change, overfishing, pollution, offshore oil development, overfishing, a lack of strongly protected areas—through federal policy and legislation, building relationships with policymakers, serving as a resource for inland constituencies, and facilitating education, outreach, and community building.
We address the impacts of agriculture on our watersheds, microplastics in our waterways, and host creek cleanups across the country. We facilitate community engagement and advocate for watershed-friendly lawn and yard care practices, healthy personal care products, and support bans on toxic sunscreens around the world.
We prevent plastic pollution through campaigns targeting single-use plastics, working collectively with coalitions and as part of larger movements to get to the root cause of plastic pollution, scientific studies that assess the extent of microplastics in our waterways, and legislative change at the state and federal levels.
To protect our ocean we must protect our climate. Our ocean is one of the most powerful carbon sinks we have and restoring ecosystems one of the best ways we have for addressing the climate crisis. We support legislation to address the climate crisis and advocate for including ocean protection as a key solution.
