Clean Ocean Action





KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.

Rally for the Rivers Eco-Fest

An environmental celebration of the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers

Join COA on Saturday, June 2, 2018 in Victory Park for a free Rally for the Rivers Eco-Fest!

You're invited to join the American Littoral Society, Clean Ocean Action and Surfrider Foundation on a June 9 trip to Washington, D.C. for the #MarchForTheOcean (M4O). Ride with us on our "Bus for Big Blue" and march alongside fellow ocean lovers from all over the world. Use this demonstration to say NO to offshore oil drilling, NO to plastic and other forms of ocean pollution, and YES to protecting our coasts and ensuring clean water for all.

Join us in celebration of the ocean and let Congress know that ocean and coastal issues matter to New Jerseyans. ? Bus capacity is limited, but your seat is free.


Waves of Thanks, Volunteers!

The data from COA's 2018 Spring Beach Sweeps held on April 21, 2018 will be combined with data from the coming Fall Beach Sweeps on October, 20, 2018 and released in the 2018 Beach Sweeps Annual Report. The data collected provides a legacy of information that can be used to identify sources of pollution, monitor trends and discover solutions.
