Are you worried about ocean acidification, overfishing and the growing menace of toxic algae?
Most people aren't.
The looming ocean crisis is so big that most people assume there is nothing they can do about it. That puts a burden on the few of us - people like you - who both understand the problem and know that it's not too late to act - not yet at least.
Big problems demand big solutions, and Ocean Champions is uniquely positioned to deliver the game changing programs needed to turn the tide for ocean health.
Please make a generous donation today, and your gift will be matched dollar-for dollar until November 30th.
What makes us unique? We work to elect pro-ocean Members of Congress, and then we work with Congress and the Obama administration to shape ocean policy. Here's proof:
Time is running out to make a difference.
- Ocean acidification: Our champions introduced the climate bills in both houses. Reducing CO2 emissions is the only way to reverse acidification, and the climate bills seek to do just that. Our champions also introduced and passed legislation to research and monitor ocean acidification in order to anticipate and mitigate its effects.
- Toxic Algae: Our champions introduced bills to mitigate, control and prevent toxic blooms. With our leadership, this bill is about to be passed!
- Overfishing: We worked to help re-authorize Magnuson-Stevens, which governs U.S. fisheries and mandates an end to overfishing. In 2010 we'll be working on fully implementing it to achieve the stated goals.
Support Ocean Champions by becoming a member today. If you care about ocean health, then we're your voice on Capitol Hill. To keep fighting for your priorities and goals, however, we need your support. If you join by November 30th, your generous gift will go twice as far, because two of our donors have agreed to match the first $10,000 contributed.
Please join today. Ocean Champions is the only ocean group that helps elect pro-ocean candidates, so our voice is heard. Your support makes that voice stronger every day.
