10 Ways to Help Our Ocean


Around Home


1. Conserve Water

Use less water so excess runoff and wastewater will not flow into the ocean.

2. Reduce Pollutants

Choose nontoxic chemicals and dispose of herbicides, pesticides, and cleaning products properly.

3. Reduce Waste

Cut down on what you throw away.


Around Town


4. Shop Wisely

Choose sustainable seafood. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable bag.

5. Reduce Vehicle Pollution

Use fuel efficient vehicles, carpool or ride a bike.

6. Use Less Energy

Choose energy efficient light bulbs and don’t overset your thermostat.


On the Water


7. Fish Responsibly

Follow “catch and release” practices and keep more fish alive.

8. Practice Safe Boating

Anchor in sandy areas far from coral and sea grasses. Adhere to “no wake” zones.

9. Respect Habitat

Healthy habitat and survival go hand in hand. Treat with care.


10. Anytime, Anywhere



Volunteer for cleanups at the beach and in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed too!
