What We Fight For

Defending our oceans from challenges threatening the vitality of the ecosystem.

Hold On To Your Butts
The Hold On To Your Butt program is an educational initiative using various media outlets to educate the public on cigarette butts' damage to our coasts. Butts are plastic and do not breakdown leaving microplastics in their wake.
