E2 Advocacy Projects: Creating a National Ocean Policy
Milestones Objective
Like a Clean Air Act for our air or a Clean Water Act for our water, we need a national policy that will offer landmark protection for our oceans. One major obstacle to protecting our oceans is the fact that they are currently governed by a mix of more than 140 laws and 20 different agencies. From overfishing and pollution, to warming temperatures and ocean acidification - a national ocean policy strengthens the government's ability to tackle these challenges.

Current Status
President Obama has announced a National Oceans Policy by adopting the Final Recommendations of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force. This policy will strengthen ocean governance and coordination.
