Today, Charlotte Vick & Sadie Waddington, of the Deep Search Foundation Outreach team, joining ocean activists across the country in a visible demonstration of support for a strong National Ocean Policy.
Rallies and Wear Blue for Oceans events where held in 11 U.S. cities. In San Francisco, Jackie Dragon, of Pacific Environment, and her team organized a spirited and colorful rally on the steps of City Hall complete with demonstrators dressed as turtles, a shark and a seal. Blue marbles passed from hand to hand through the crowd as a gentle reminder to live like we love this blue ocean planet. Check out www.wearblueforoceans.org to see our blue action, coast to coast.
The highlights of the event were captured by David McGuire of Sea Stewards, on film. Click here

In the words of Jackie Dragon, “So many people thought about the fate of our oceans — many wore blue to show they care – – because you told them about this!” Thank you for making this event a success.
If you, or someone you know, has yet to show their support for our first-ever conservation-based National Ocean Policy there is still time to submit comments, and your photos in blue! Just go to www.wearblueforoceans.org!
