Ocean Champions: Political Champions for Ocean Conservation

Dear Friend,

A clean, healthy, well-managed ocean is something that serves us all, but I think that's a fact that's easily forgotten, especially if you're not lucky enough to live near coastal waters, as most of our ocean champions do. However, our newest champion, Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) sees the big picture. While he hails from a land-locked state miles from the shore, he's doing a lot to serve our oceans, and he needs our help. Senator Udall faces a tough reelection this November.  Join us tonight for the reception Ocean Champions PAC is hosting in DC.  If you can't attend, please consider supporting his reelection campaignEvery dollar contributed goes directly to the Senator's campaign.

In his first term serving the Rocky Mountain State on Capitol Hill, Senator Udall has prioritized energy and climate issues, leveraging his seat on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee promote legislation aimed at reducing fossil fuel use and moving America toward a clean energy future. And, in the true Ocean Champion tradition, he knows how to work across the aisle and across constituencies to get things done.

An avid outdoorsman, Senator Udall lists protection of his home state’s spectacular wild lands and rivers as a key motivator in his decision to seek public office. In 2012, helmed a collaborative, community-based effort that looked at how to bring wilderness and national monument designations to two of Colorado’s most beautiful areas — the Central Mountains and Browns Canyon on the Arkansas River. He has brought that ethic to all aspects of his service beyond Colorado’s boundaries all the way to our nation’s coastlines.

While not every state can have the tremendous natural beauty of sweeping oceanscapes or secluded beaches, Colorado does all right for itself. And if every legislator from the central part of the country carried priorities like Senator Udall’s, our natural resources and our oceans would be in the best of hands.

We’re thrilled to endorse Senator Mark Udall’s reelection bid, and doing all we can to help him earn six more years for this ocean champion from the Rocky Mountains. We hope you can join us tonight in DC.  Please consider supporting his campaign even if you can't.  Thanks for your consideration.

For the oceans,

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

P.S.  We’re working harder than ever to win the fight to build an ocean majority in Congress.  Tell your friends to join our email list and to consider a contribution today so that they’ll know how to “vote the ocean” too!
