Defend the National Ocean Policy

Please ask your Representative to support the National Ocean Policy and oppose any proposal that would restrict its funding or implementation.

Last year, President Obama established the National Ocean Policy to help protect and restore our nation's oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes. The policy is already being implemented and is improving collaboration between government agencies, scientists, ocean users, and members of the public.

But now some Members of Congress are attempting to stop the National Ocean Policy with a backdoor attack through an FY12 Interior Appropriations bill. Halting implementation of the policy would reduce our nation's capacity to protect and restore our ocean and coastal ecosystems and the communities that depend upon them. Please make your voice heard and ask your Representative to support the National Ocean Policy and oppose any proposal that would restrict its funding or implementation.
