Ocean Champions: Political Champions for Ocean Conservation

Dear Friend,

Thanks to great support from the ocean community, we’ve been able to build incredible momentum for the oceans in Congress.  In 2012, 43 of the 46 candidates Ocean Champions supported were elected (93%), and there are now 51 champions serving across both chambers.  In the Senate, nearly 1 in 5 members are now ocean champions! 
 
As the number of champions grows, so too do the victories for our oceans.  Earlier this year, Senate champion Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) gained Senate approval of the National Endowment for the Oceans, which would drive millions of dollars annually to ocean conservation projects.  Other champions are leading efforts to fight coastal water pollution and sustain healthy fisheries.
 
By becoming a member today, you can help us keep pushing for a future that includes an ocean majority in Congress.  To jump start this vision, we’re launching the $1 million Ocean Majority Fund.  As a Founding Member of the Ocean Majority Fund you will help:

  • Dramatically increase our direct electoral giving and strategic bundling to keep bringing more champions to Washington, D.C. until we have an ocean majority.
  • Hold Members accountable for their anti-ocean votes by running innovative, strategically targeted, independent expenditure campaigns to deliver knockout blows in multiple races.
  • Expand our network to include innovative, influential leaders from the political, business, conservation, entertainment and philanthropic arenas to bring diverse expertise to bear on our biggest ocean challenges.
Please join Ocean Champions and become a Founding Member in the Ocean Majority Fund. Our shared goal is to fully restore our oceans’ health and vitality.  Let’s deliver on the promise of ocean political power to change what is possible for our oceans and ocean wildlife.

For the Oceans,

David Wilmot, Ph.D.
