Dear Friend,We’ve just been informed that the RESTORE Act is expected to get a Senate floor vote this week, perhaps as early as today. The RESTORE Act includes the National Endowment for the Oceans (NEO), which would establish the first annual fund for ocean conservation work.
NEO would direct major investments every year in projects “to restore, protect, maintain, or understand the resources of the oceans, coasts and Great Lakes.” Make no mistake, this would be a major victory for ocean conservation.
This could be our best chance to pass RESTORE (and thus NEO) in the Senate during this Congress. Please send this letter to your Senators asking them to support the RESTORE Act today!
For the oceans,
The Ocean Champions Team
P.S. NEO is being driven by ocean champions in the Senate. Help us keep these ocean warriors in office (and elect more champions) by donating to Ocean Champions today.
