Ocean Day started in 2005 as a way to bring advocates to the state capitol to discuss important ocean issues with state legislators. For 11 years this massive single-day event has worked to educate legislators on the most up-to-date issues and events concerning our oceans and how they keep California beautiful.
We know that the ocean plays a crucial role to both our environment and economy.
Advocates will discuss ensuring the success of our marine protected areas, making our ocean accessible for all Californians, as well as helping to protect the coast from the harmful effects of industrialization. Our team believes the state is making strides in clean energy and hope to share with you the many ways the ocean can be an essential tool in moving towards a safer and more sustainable future.
