Preserve California Beaches and Wildlife

I live out in the Outer Sunset across the street from Ocean Beach (it’s the closest you’ll get to ocean front property in San Francicso!), so maybe I am a little biased, but I feel like we all like Oceans right?  And we’d like them to be clean and pollutant free for future generations, yes? 
Well, on April 16th, you can help do something about it. 
The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Ocean Action Team recently sent out a request that I think is worth sharing.  If you’re free on April 16th, please take a little time out of your schedule to share youro views about preserving out oceans.

Preserve our beaches and our wildlife

In December 2008, the Bush administration lifted a 27-year moratorium on offshore drilling, opening the way for oil and gas development and a potential threat to our wildlife, beaches and the coastal economy upon which California depends.

What can I do?

Send an electronic letter to your representative and support the California Ocean and Coastal Protection Act.
Many California representatives already support this bill, therefore when you enter your zip code you will be directed to either a letter of thanks, or a letter to encourage support.

The Obama administration is holding town hall meetings in four U.S. cities to hear the publics’ view on offshore drilling. On April 16, a meeting will be held in San Francisco at the Robertson Auditorium, University of California.

Can you join us there?
