Today is World Oceans Day!

Our oceans need your help! Everywhere species are being fished out of existance and our seas/lakes/rivers are being polluted.

What can you do to help? Take the Seven C's Pledge and learn about how you can help our oceans!

The Seven C's:

  • Commit to making a real difference
    Aim to be carbon neutral by reducing and offsetting your energy consumption.
  • Conserve in your home
    Upgrade to Energy Star appliances and compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  • Consume consciously
    Rethink what you need, purchase “green” products, buy locally grown foods, and choose
    sustainable seafood.
  • Communicate your interests and concerns
    Let your friends, family, colleagues, and the local media know about the impact of climate change on the ocean.
  • Challenge yourself daily
    Walk, bike, carpool, and take public transportation to cut down your carbon emissions.
  • Connect in your community
    Get active as a volunteer with a local
    watershed or ocean group.
And don't forget to wear something blue to show your support!
