Help save our seas and Great Lakes!

You can help establish a protective national policy for our oceans, coasts and Great Lakes!

Ask that President Obama issue an executive order to formally establish a national policy to protect, maintain and restore the health of our oceans, coasts and Great Lakes.

  
You can find the following information on this site:
     - facts about the health of our ocean and Great Lakes resources
     - information about the Ocean Policy Task Force
     - background materials to help you prepare for the hearings

The Task Force's Draft Report regarding establishment of a National Policy is now available at:
