PROTECT WHAT YOU LOVE
Each year, more than 8 million metric tons of plastics ends up in the ocean. Are you ready to turn the tide today? Become an M4O champion in 2019 & march to stop offshore drilling, to demand corporate accountability for plastic pollution and funding to protect vulnerable coastal communities. From seagulls to sea lions and everything in between, we depend on a healthy and resilient ocean. Will you march with us in 2019?
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 from Oceana to every continent except Antarctica. We said NO to offshore oil testing, drilling and spilling; YES to Corporate Accountability for plastic pollution; NO 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. These common sense demands were not met so we March again, bigger and more determined on World Oceans Day, Saturday, June 8, 2019.
Rise with March for the Ocean 2019 to defend our coasts and ocean!
Join marches in California, New York, Colorado, Michigan and Mexico, Suriname and France along with many other marches, flotillas and water celebrations. Wear Blue for the Ocean!

ORGANIZE A MARCH IN 2019
On 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.
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 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 8th and help build a BLUE WAVE in 2019!
