March for the Ocean (M4O)

March for the Ocean is about the survival of our blue planet.  But it’s also about the fact that it’s not too late to turn the tide - restore and protect what we love.

March for the Ocean - for water - for our future and say NO to offshore oil testing, leasing, drilling and spilling; YES to Corporate Accountability for plastic pollutionNO to plastic and other forms of Ocean pollution; YES to protecting our coastal communities; and YES to a Healthy Ocean and Clean Water for All.

On Saturday June 9, 2018, World Oceans Day weekend and the beginning of the 2018 hurricane season, the March for the Ocean (M4O) campaign mounted mass marches, flotillas and rallies in our nation’s capital and around the country. 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 wildlife and to promote protection and restoration of our coastlines in the face of rising seas and intensified hurricanes like last year’s Harvey, Irma and Maria.
Join us and help build a BLUE WAVE in 2019!
