Every global citizen is responsible for the health of our shared ocean. This year, make positive changes in your own life that will also benefit the ocean.
Take the Seven C’s Pledge for ocean conservation:
- 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.
- Use water wisely! It’s up to us to preserve our precious fresh water.
- 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.
