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 canvassing organization.

Fish Die-off

After extensive investigation, the NJDEP identified the cause of dead bunker in the Two Rivers Area in Monmouth County, NJ, to be a bacterium, Vibrio anguillarum. NJDEP released an FAQ sheet with more detailed information. Read the NJDEP's FAQs here.  Learn more about the die-off on COA's blog.  

At last month's COA Rally for the Two Rivers meeting, representatives from the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), alongside Senator Vin Gopal, Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey and Councilwoman Meghan Walker, spoke about the ongoing fish die-off in the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers.

Support a Ban on Balloon Releases

NJ Assembly Members Houghtaling (NJ-11) and Downey (NJ-11) introduced a statewide bill to prohibit the intentional outdoor release of balloons, and to minimize accidental release. Balloons are festive and fun, but released outdoors they can be lethal to birds, turtles, whales, and many others. Balloons litter our ocean and are one of the most lethal forms of marine debris.

Support A4322 by signing the petition! COA is not anti-balloon, just anti-balloon litter, and want to protect marine life from this harmful, painful, and senseless threat. Read the Press Release


Clean Ocean Action’s virtual EcoGuide for students, teachers, and families is now live! Published in previous years to promote the eco-friendly enjoyment of the Jersey Shore, COA has now taken this mission virtual so that it can be accomplished on-the-go. This comprehensive tool serves as a fun database of the best ways to enjoy marine ecosystems while also protecting them. This includes eco-friendly activities for all ages, educational information on issues that COA addresses, and tips on the best places to appreciate nature in NJ.

The EcoGuide is made possible thanks to generous support from the Marta Heflin Foundation.
