Clean Ocean Action

Sometimes in the waves of change, we find our true direction. - Unknown

A breaching whale is one of nature’s most magnificent and majestic sights. It is also a testament to the wild ocean and its vast and endless realm of freedom.   

These spectacular sights, though still rare, are seen by those in the New Jersey and New York region by beach-goers and sea farers. This joyful fact is possible thanks to the support of friends of the ocean like you that help support Clean Ocean Action. Not long ago, seeing whales and dolphins jumping for joy or for what reason was unheard of due to the high levels of pollution in these waters. 

Together, we have come a long way—yet threats abound and we need you continued support: 

  • The massive offshore wind industry must not have free reign over the ocean.  They must be challenged to ensure ocean resources are protected with a responsible, reasonable, and rational development that is tied to pilot projects and safer, cheaper, and faster alternative onshore energy alternatives. 
  • The plastics industry continues to increase plastic use and abuse, resulting in littered oceans—indeed the world. The obvious and insidious environmental threats to the planet and people must be fought at every level—from the home to the White House. 
  • Land-based pollution continues to flow into the ocean harming essential coastal habitats and estuaries, the nursery ground for many ocean species. Tracking down and eliminating these sources of mostly people pollution is where we can all get involved and slow the flow.

Education, motivation, and action are the keys to meet these David vs Goliath challenges. We have been here before and we persevere and succeed, but only because of you!

You are the solution and the ocean’s greatest hope!
