Thank you for supporting the fight for healthy oceans. Together, we've waged a few battles on behalf of the oceans. Now, we need your support to stand before one of the most important battles yet: Oceans 21.
The Joint Ocean Commission Initiative recently issued the 2007 U.S. Ocean Policy Report Card. Guess what? We're on the path to failure. But, just like we tell our kids-report cards show us where we need to focus and improve. When we read that "The health of our ocean and coastal ecosystems is declining at an alarming rate in the face of increasing pressures such as coastal development, pollution, overfishing, and invasive species", it's obvious to us where the priority needs to be.
Fortunately, the OCEANS-21 BILL is a step in the right direction.
Here's two things you can do to help move this very important BILL along:
After you've done those two small things that will make such a big difference, take some time to visit the natural waterway near you. And, pat yourself on the back knowing that you contributed to healthier oceans for all of us.
Together we'll raise the grade!
For The Oceans,
The Ocean Champions Team
P.S. Last year you helped raise a significant amount of money in our 'GIVE $21 for OCEANS-21' campaign. Let's see if we can beat this in 2008!
