Dear Friend,

When we started promoting OCEANS-21 almost two years ago, we knew you’d like the scope of its vision and mission. We’re now at the point where we can actually see movement on this important piece of legislation. That means NOW is the perfect time for you to help us pass this comprehensive, healthy ocean policy for our nation.

OCEANS-21 unites all of our efforts on behalf of ocean health!

Our oceans are currently managed under 140 laws implemented by 20 Federal agencies, without a unifying vision to ensure the overall health and productivity of the ocean. Sketchy effort? You bet. But, with OCEANS-21 we finally have a unifying vision, with mechanisms to ensure healthy ocean policy for everyone's benefit.

YOU CAN HELP MOVE OCEANS-21 FORWARD
, HERE'S HOW:

Contact your Representative. The bill has been redrafted to address concerns of Committee members, while keeping its strong legislation in tact (for you policy wonks out there, read the latest draft of the bill here). We need to act now in support of this legislation!

Send a message urging your Representative to support and vote 'YES' for OCEANS-21. And, oppose all amendments that weaken this bill.


If you prefer to call your representative, the Capitol switchboard number is 202-224-3121.

BUILD SUPPORT FOR OCEANS-21!

For the oceans,

The Ocean Champions Team
