Our Mission

The Healthy Oceans Coalition is a network of ocean users, conservationists, and concerned citizens supporting full implementation of the National Ocean Policy for the stewardship of our oceans, coasts and Great Lakes.

Our Story

The Healthy Oceans Coalition started with Wear Blue Day 2010 when a group of committed citizens and conservationists across the nation came together to around a single goal: support President Obama’s intent to establish a comprehensive National Policy that protects, maintains, and restores our oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes.

The event was such a success that people continued talking about how to continue support for the National Ocean Policy from the regions to our nation’s capitol. From that came the Healthy Oceans Coalition. Today the Healthy Oceans Coalition is a broad network of ocean users and lovers working to ensure full implementation of our nation’s first stewardship policy to protect, maintain and restore our ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes (aka the National Ocean Policy).
