Clean coastal water is continually under attack! Fertilizer, pesticides, oil spills and plastic garbage all find their way into our oceans at increasingly rapid rates. You’ve seen the results - dead zones, massive fish kills and turtles and sea birds choked by plastic debris.
Now Congressman Doc Hastings (R-WA), the Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, has just introduced three bills to greatly increase offshore drilling in the Gulf while opening up new sites along the California, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts! (Meanwhile, oil-soaked young dolphins are washing up dead on the shores of the Gulf by the dozen)
As the only ocean group that endorses and supports Members of Congress, our voice is heard, but we need your help to make it even stronger at this critical time. Please become a “Crusader for Clean Coastal Water” by donating generously to Ocean Champions today.
The attacks on clean water have already begun, exemplified by recent attempts to kill the EPA’s ability to regulate water quality under the Clean Water Act. We’re working closely with our champions on the Hill to make sure our side wins, and we need your help!
For the oceans,
