Ways to Help Our Oceans
1. Conserve Water
Use less water so excess runoff and wastewater will not flow into the ocean.
2. Reduce Pollutants
Choose nontoxic chemicals and dispose of herbicides, pesticides, and cleaning products properly.
3. Reduce Waste
Cut down on what you throw away.
4. Shop Wisely
Choose sustainable seafood. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable bag.
5. Reduce Vehicle Pollution
Use fuel efficient vehicles, carpool or ride a bike.
6. Use Less Energy
Choose energy efficient light bulbs and don't overset your thermostat.

7. Fish Responsibly
Follow "catch and release" practices and keep more fish alive.
8. Practice Safe Boating
Anchor in sandy areas far from coral and sea grasses. Adhere to "no wake" zones.
9. Respect Habitat
Healthy habitat and survival go hand in hand. Treat with care.
10. Anytime, Anywhere
Volunteer for cleanups at the beach and in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed too!
