Protect ocean wildlife

Don't Let Polluters Profit from Our Oceans

Another attempt to undermine protections for our oceans and appease the fossil fuel industry is underway and we must put a stop to it before these vital marine habitats are spoiled forever!

The latest attack on our wildlife and wild places targets some of our most sensitive and diverse wildlife habitats: our oceans, coastlines and the Great Lakes. President Trump has ordered Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to “review” all five of our marine national monuments and six national marine sanctuaries.

These incredible waters support a rich array of species, including dolphins, deep-sea corals, fish and seabirds. They provide important habitat for dozens of imperiled species including endangered blue whales, hawksbill sea turtles and Hawaiian monk seals.

This assault on our waters is just the latest attempt to put polluting interests and the almighty dollar above the immeasurable value of wildlife, the environment and iconic public places.

Speak out now to defend these vital ocean habitats and the wildlife that depend on them. Our oceans and Great Lakes are counting on you!
