On Saturday June 9, 2018, World Oceans Day weekend and the beginning of the 2018 hurricane season, the March for the Ocean (M4O) campaign will mount mass marches, flotillas and rallies in our nation’s capital and around the country. People will be mobilizing 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. Over 100 partners are mobilizing a broad and diverse constituency to #MarchForTheOcean on June 9th, promoting ocean solutions for the problems that threaten our blue planet. A growing chorus of supporters including environmentalists, scientists, surfers, divers, students, parents, teachers, celebrities, fishermen, social justice advocates, small businesses, major aquariums, deep-sea explorers and citizen activists - everyone who gets so much from the ocean, lakes and rivers - is mobilizing to give something back! There will be many simultaneous marches, flotillas, and water celebrations across the country- including Boulder, Colorado. Our specific march aims to promote the interconnectivity between the land and sea. Those who live among mountains, rivers, and inland cities have a direct impact on the cycles of life in the oceans. Our goal is to inspire civilians to take action and make a difference in regards to ocean conservation and climate change. #TheOceanIsRising #AndSoAreWe #MarchForTheOcean #M4O
