Tell Congress to Protect the Mid-Atlantic Ocean
The Mid-Atlantic Ocean is home to diverse and stunning marine ecosystems. Fish, marine mammals, and sea turtles all thrive in Mid-Atlantic waters, and our coastal communities depend on a healthy ocean for a robust economy.
But the health of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean is threatened by new unchecked development. Increases in dredging offshore sand and potential exploration for oil and gas can affect marine wildlife and the fishing, boating, and tourist industries that rely on a healthy ocean.
Now more than ever, it's crucial for us to protect the Mid-Atlantic Ocean. The Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body will soon release a draft Ocean Action Plan, and we'll have 45 days to make public comment. The American Littoral Society is bringing your voices straight to Congress. In a few weeks, we will bring your signatures in person to your Congress members to show your support for strong ocean conservation.
Sign your name to tell your members of Congress why you want them to support a strong Ocean Action Plan!

Dear Decision Maker:
The Mid-Atlantic Ocean is one of our shining treasures. Not only is it home to diverse ecosystems and marine wildlife, but coastal communities depend on a healthy Atlantic Ocean for a robust economy.
That's why I'm concerned about the threat of new development without a plan in place to protect our ocean environment. Increases in dredging offshore sand and exploration for oil and gas can affect marine wild life and the fishing, boating, and tourist industries that all rely on a healthy ocean.
As your constituent, I urge you to support a strong Ocean Action Plan that protects our ocean and its special places from unchecked development.
