Action needed for Washington's Pacific Coast

It’s getting crowded out there in the ocean. No, we’re not talking about the lineup at your local break…

There are several new proposed uses of the ocean -- alternative energy projects, oil and coal exports, aquaculture projects and more that are competing for the same space as other uses, such as kayaking, surfing and fishing. New uses may also threaten the health of ocean and coastal resources.

Please take a second to ask your state legislator to secure $4 million in funding to support marine spatial planning on Washington’s Pacific coast for the next two years so that we may protect priority ecological and recreational areas from new conflicting uses.
