Ocean Champions: Political Champions for Ocean Conservation

Dear Friend,

Ocean Champions is proud to report that late last night, the U.S. Congress passed the Harmful Algal Blooms bill and sent it to President Obama to be signed into final law – the first free-standing oceans bill to be passed by this Congress.
 
“I’d like to offer special thanks to champions Sen. Nelson and Congresswoman Bonamici, to Sen. Portman, and to the many other ocean champions – Democrats, Republicans and Independents - in the House and Senate who worked to deliver this win for the oceans.” said David Wilmot, Ph.D., President of Ocean Champions.

This legislation is a significant step forward in recognizing and addressing the growing problem of toxic and harmful algal blooms and hypoxia including dead zones; a commitment amplified by the bipartisan nature of the support.

“Not only is this bill a strong step in the right direction, we intend to continue working with all of our champions to achieve even more for the oceans.” 

For the oceans,

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