Comments Off on Ocean Conservancy Holds US Responsible for Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning

This week we’re on the topic of saving endangered sea life , and now is the best time to take action with the Ocean Conservancy ! The Obama Administration has a newly formed Ocean Policy Task Force that’s accelerating a planning process for our glorious ocean and coasts. Since it’s up to us to make sure these plans maintain, protect, revive and restore the health of the sea sustainably, I also sent the message below to the Obama Administration and the National Ocean Policy Task Force .
