Ocean planning helps move our government away from species-by-species management toward integrated, holistic management of our ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems. We work to support ocean planning around the country.
Ensuring that the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes are healthy and clean requires full funding for valuable our federal and state programs and initiatives to provide these ecosystems the attention they need to thrive. Dive in and learn more how the HOC is working to support full funding for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and how you can help.
Now, more than ever, we need a coalition of citizens who want our public resources, held in trust by the government for the good of all citizens, ready to create a blue line of defense for our ocean and coasts.
