Take the Oceans Alive Pledge

Help Us Find a Teddy Roosevelt for Our Oceans

Teddy Roosevelt left an enduring legacy in protecting our nations last great places and saving millions of acres of wild land. Today, our oceans are in trouble, with marine life and plants in danger of vanishing forever. We need a champion to commit that same level of action to our oceans. Send a message to President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry urging them to become the Teddy Roosevelt of the oceans and to restore the health of our seas:

*Oceans in Crisis*

Covering more than two-thirds of the Earth's surface, our oceans were once thought to be an inexhaustible resource, too vast to be damaged by the actions of humans. We now know differently. Fisheries are collapsing, runoff is polluting coastal waters and coral reefs are dying. Our coasts are being carved up to make room for housing, hotels, roads and fish farms, and our waterways are dumping grounds for toxins and other waste.

From icy seas to warm tropical waters, more than two-thirds of the world's fisheries have been overfished. Billions of pounds of fish each year are wasted as unwanted "bycatch" (catch tossed overboard, dead or dying, for lack of market). And hundreds of thousands of seabirds, marine mammals, sea turtles and other marine life are killed through destructive fishing practices.

The explosion in fish farming to satisfy our growing appetite for seafood is polluting our coastal waters with fish waste, antibiotics and other pollutants. Runoff from farms, animal feedlots and streets has created huge 'dead zones' in many bays and estuaries, where few life forms survive.

*Oceans Alive Calls For Action*

The recent draft report by the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy confirms that our oceans are in trouble, findings that are echoed by the Pew Ocean Commission and many others. Our oceans need help, and with the right tools we can reverse this decline.

The election year offers a historic opportunity for movement on ocean issues. Building on our long commitment to practical solutions, our Oceans Alive campaign is dedicated to protecting and restoring this vital web of life.

*Wanted: The Teddy Roosevelt for Our Oceans*

Why Teddy Roosevelt? During his presidency, Roosevelt championed conservation and saved millions of acres of wild land for the benefit of all Americans. Today, we need a champion to commit that same level of passion and action to our oceans.
