Ocean Champions: Political Champions for Ocean Conservation

Dear Friend,

With the holidays approaching, there are many, many reasons to be thankful, and we’re definitely feelin’ it! Specifically, we’re thankful…

  • For you! All the items below couldn’t have happened without the incredible support we get from ocean activists like you. Thousands of you supported our legislative and electoral campaigns, and engaged your Senators and Representatives on behalf of the oceans.

  • Turkeys lost big this year! The Ocean Champions-endorsed candidate won in 43 of 46 races, including 10 out of 10 in the Senate. Thank you for voting the oceans! This sent a lot of anti-ocean turkeys (like Congressmen Brian Bilbray and Allen West) home, and sent more support for ocean health to DC than ever before.

  • Two good ocean bills have a chance to pass in the Lame Duck session. The Trash Free Seas bill (addressing ocean garbage) has already passed the House and has a shot in the Senate. In addition, we’ve worked to put the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Act in play once again!

There will certainly be challenges next year, but the future for our oceans is looking brighter. And we know that when challenges appear and opportunities arise, you’ll be there fighting with us, and for that, we’re incredibly thankful.

For the Oceans,

David Wilmot, Ph.D.
President and Co-Founder

Mike Dunmyer
Executive Director
