Ocean Conservancy is a US organisation whose vision is to maintain a healthy ocean and marine wildlife.
This particular campaign asks for participants to bring pressure to bear on the US government to pass the Restore Act, legislation soon to be submitted to the committee by Chairwoman Boxer. The legislation is aimed at directing funding – fines collected from BP as a result of the devastating oil spillage in the Gulf being just one example – to the places which are most in need, primarily the Gulf states where the most damage has been wrought, both in terms of fisheries and marine wildlife. A third of the funding will be directed to restoration programs.
Your participation can make a world of difference in ensuring that the Restore Act legislation is successfully passed. Simply complete and submit the online petition. Let your voice be heard.
