Tell your Senators to stand strong for clean water and oppose amendments that undermine the Clean Water Act in appropriations legislation.

U.S. BEACH Act Funding

dirty beachAsk Congress to continue to support beach water testing programs! Just like health safety inspections for food, we rely on water quality monitoring and reporting to ensure that the water we swim, surf and play in is safe. With over 20,000 beach closures and advisories issued last year, now is not the time to stop beach monitoring.

The blasts from seismic air guns have been shown to interfere with the mating, feeding, communication, and migration activities of numerous species, including the endangered Right Whale. Please sign the petition to ask the Department of Interior to cancel plans for seismic exploration off the Atlantic coast.

Protect Your Coast from Offshore Drilling

Our nation’s coasts provide billions of dollars in economic revenue through recreation, tourism, and healthy seafood. We must protect these benefits by preventing the expansion of offshore drilling. Please make your voice heard and tell your Senators that you support protecting our coasts from the needless expansion of offshore oil and gas development.

Save Access to Cape Hatteras Surf Breaks

hatterasThe National Park Service is currently developing a long-term plan for off-road-vehicle and pedestrian access inside Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Let them know, when making decisions, to remember Cape Hatteras’ unparalleled role as the most popular and influential surfing region on the East Coast. Also demand they look for a wide range of solutions besides closures; ones that benefit the animal species while guaranteeing humans can continue to enjoy and protect this most-precious coastal resource for years to come.

Take the “Rise Above Plastics” Pledge

RAP

Plastic is forever, with virtually every piece of petroleum-based plastic ever made still in existence. That’s why it’s so critical to our oceans and beaches that we dramatically reduce our use of plastics, especially single-use plastics. This plastic ends up in the stomachs of marine birds and animals. In fact, one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals die globally each year due to ingestion of or entanglement in plastics. You can make a difference for our world’s oceans, waves and beaches – pledge to rise above plastics today!
