Dear Friend of the Sea,

Got plans on September 19th? We hope you’ll meet us at a beach or inland waterway near you for our 24th Annual International Coastal Cleanup. If you haven't already, please join the hundreds of thousands of other volunteers for the Cleanup.

We need your help spreading the word about this world-wide event. Please consider putting up posters at community meeting places near you. And if you’re on Facebook, we have two new "Apps" for the Cleanup — you can help spread the word by checking them out: Take a Beach Break, or find out Which Ocean is Your Ocean.

See you at this year’s Cleanup, and once again, thanks for helping us get the word out about the world's largest volunteer effort of its kind for the ocean!

Arctic Ice

Please Send a Message to Protect the Arctic

The Arctic is a special place — sensitive and vulnerable to disturbance by impacts of oil and gas drilling. Please send an urgent message today to Secretary Salazar — calling for better science and a more precautionary approach in the Arctic — and then get your friends involved, too.

Fish Pen

Please Tell Congress We Need Bold Leadership on Fish Farming Now

The Administration's recent misguided decision to allow fish farming to proceed in the Gulf of Mexico — without having strong national standards in place — only makes it more urgent that Congress act...and act soon! Send a message to Congress — to let them know about the real risks involved with offshore fish farming»
