Fight for the Oceans Day!

In honor of Dr. Sylvia Earle, F.E.P. declares August 30th as Fight for the Oceans Day! We’re asking people to take action by organizing a clean-up at a local beach, river, or lake, and to stop eating marine creatures! If you can’t do it on the 30th, the weekend would work great too — see below for a list of planned clean-up events!

Don’t see one in your area, but want to organize a beach clean-up? Send us an email for information on how to get started!
