Global fisheries are on the verge of collapse due to overfishing and other destructive practices. You can help protect and restore fish populations by choosing seafood from sustainable sources. For the most up-to-date guidance, download the Seafood Watch app from our strategic partner the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
When plastic waste reaches the ocean, it kills birds, sea turtles, and marine mammals. Floating plastic debris often resembles food, and animals may choke or starve when plastic blocks their digestive systems. To help prevent these unnecessary deaths, choose reusable items over single-use plastic bags and bottles, and avoid products with excessive packaging. Sea Save is a proud strategic partner in the Plastic Pollution Coalition.
Your choices matter. Avoid buying unsustainable and environmentally destructive goods, such as cosmetics containing microbeads, or jewelry made of coral or sea turtle shells. These products have been linked directly to destruction of marine ecosystems.
Sea Save Foundation is a non-partisan advocate for practical, science-based policies that defend ocean life while preserving local economies. To be successful, we need elected officials who understand what’s at stake. Before you vote, do your research to know which candidates, if elected, will be making ocean-friendly decisions. After elections are over, call and write to your elected officials, encouraging them to support ocean conservation measures. #VoteTheOcean
