PROTECT WHAT YOU LOVE
The ocean absorbs 90% of the heat and a third of the carbon dioxide generated by fossil fuel fired climate disruption. Are you ready to turn the tide and restore our living Ocean? Become an M4O champion in 2020 & march to stop offshore drilling, to demand corporate accountability for plastic pollution and practical actions to protect vulnerable coastal communities, both human and wild. From seagulls to sea lions to six-year-old humans and everything in between, we depend on a healthy and resilient ocean. Will you march with us in 2020?
March for the Ocean is about the survival of our blue planet. In 2018 we had over 140 marches from Washington D.C. to Florida to California and in 26 nations from Africa and Oceana to every other continent except Antarctica. In 2019 we marched from Paris to California, and countless places in-between. We said NO to offshore oil drilling and spilling; YES to Corporate Accountability for plastic pollution; NO to other forms of Ocean pollution; YES to protecting our coastal communities; and YES to a Healthy Ocean and Clean Water for All. These common sense demands were not met so we March again, bigger and more determined to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020
Rise with March for the Ocean 2019 to defend our coasts and ocean!
Join marches or create your own. And Wear Blue for the Ocean!
MARCH FOR THE OCEAN
JUNE 8, 2019
Start a sea change today! TOGETHER, WE ARE BIG AS THE OCEAN!
ORGANIZE A MARCH IN 2019
On World Oceans Day weekend and the beginning of the 2018 and 2019 hurricane seasons, the March for the Ocean (M4O) campaign mounted mass marches, flotillas and rallies in Washington D.C., on the Coney Island Boardwalk, above and below the waters of Florida, on Islands both large (Ireland, Indonesia the Philippines) and small (Saipan, Cozumel, Cape Verde) and many other places around the country and the world. People mobilized to stop reckless offshore oil drilling being pursued by the Trump administration and to promote job-generating clean energy, to call for large-scale reduction in plastic waste that is killing ocean life and to promote protection and restoration of our coastlines in the face of rising seas and intensified hurricanes.
Thousands took action to show the government and polluting industries that we stand united to protect the waters that give us all life. We voted for the ocean! We marched to put an end to the petrochemical, plastic and other polluted runoff that is poisoning our drinking water and coastal seas (that’s you Florida!) and putting our health and economies at risk; we marched for clean energy - for economic, job-generating safe alternatives to offshore oil drilling and spilling; we marched for neighborhoods and communities endangered by rising seas, intensified hurricanes, historic flooding and other calamities exacerbated by carbon and other greenhouse gas pollutants. We marched in support of science that is funded, respected and uncensored and common sense solutions for our and future generations.
Together, we can build a healthy Blue Planet based on equity, justice and clean water for all. Join us this June for the 3rd March for the Ocean. Remember #TheOceanIsRising #ButSoAreWe
