Dear Friend of the Ocean,

Happy World Oceans Day — I hope that you'll take a moment to reflect on all that the ocean gives us.

You can kick off your World Oceans Day by taking action to protect it: Sign our petition demanding transparency in the Gulf restoration efforts. The public deserves to know what’s going on in the Gulf, and so far most of the government’s research has been conducted behind closed doors.

You can also honor the ocean today by adding your name as "citizen co-sponsor" for the National Endowment for the Ocean. This bill would establish a national endowment for the study, protection, and restoration of our nation's ocean and inland waterways — and it's critical to helping care for all of the communities and wildlife that rely on a healthy ocean.

Tell NOAA: Let the Public Know What's Happening in the Gulf of Mexico

We're calling for transparency in the Gulf of Mexico damage assessment and restoration process — and we need your help. The public needs to know what the initial findings are from the studies underway. Add your name to our petition before June 24th»


What You Helped Us Achieve

Thanks for being there last month when we called on you to support California's bill requiring genetically engineered salmon to be labeled. The California Assembly decided to put the bill on hold, so while we didn't win yet, we're delighted that ocean-lovers like you spoke up — your actions made a real difference in making sure this first-of-its-kind bill for California wasn't defeated. We'll keep you updated with what's next, but in the meantime see why we think a labeling law would be good for fishermen, industry and consumers in this Huffington Post blog»


And the Winner Is...

Thank you for helping us select the cover photo for our 2011 Ocean Conservancy calendar. The votes are in and the winner is "Come Swimming, Cozumel" by Dave Cowlishaw. Check out this slideshow of all of the photo contest finalists»
