Dear Friend of the Sea,

Right now we're updating the image on our member card, and I need your help deciding which picture will be the one that all Ocean Conservancy members carry with them.

Each choice — the swimming sea turtle, baby seal, or polar bear family — represents an important aspect of our work: to find solutions for sustainable fishing; to save marine wildlife; and to ensure a future for the Arctic's people, its wildlife, and the entire planet.
