In honor of Dr. Sylvia Earle, F.E.P. declares August 30th as Fight for the Oceans Day! We’re asking people to take action by organizing a clean-up at a local beach, river, or lake, and to stop eating marine creatures! If you can’t do it on the 30th, the weekend is great too.

Want to organize a beach clean-up in your area? Send us an email for information on how to get started!
