Clean Ocean Action

Clean Ocean Advocate, August 2005


Featuring...The Blue Movement Directory

     A new national environmental movement is emerging to help combat threats to America’s oceans and coasts, with hundreds of local and regional groups, as well as dozens of national and international organizations.  The Ocean and Coastal Conservation Guide is a comprehensive guide to this new “Blue Movement.”  The directory is edited by David Helvarg, author of Blue Frontier: Saving America’s Living Seas, and founder of the Blue Frontier Campaign

     This new reference guide details more than 2,000 organizations and institutions that are working to understand, protect, and restore our ocean and coastal areas.  The book provides telephone and fax numbers, email and web addresses, and a brief description of program areas of interest.  Also, the directory includes relevant government agencies, academic marine programs, and marine and coastal parks and protected areas.  It is a great

networking tool and many of Clean Ocean Action’s Participating Organizations are listed in this helpful guide. 

     This guide is a vital new resource for all ocean and coastal advocates.  To order (paperbacks are $26.95 + S&H; hardcovers are $59.95 + S&H): call 1-800-621-2736, fax 1-800-621-8476, email, or go to
