Clean Ocean Action





KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.

The big chill has enveloped the coast, bringing a time of transition and reflection. Gone are the summer-time sensations of hot sand, refreshing waves, and glimpses of whales, dolphins, and turtles. It is now the seals’ turn to bask on our beaches and for bundled up people to enjoy walks on the quiet shores, while true blue fishermen and surfers brave the frigid waters to pursue their sport. 

Thanks to your ocean advocacy, year-round seaside adventures are possible for all to enjoy.

2018 is shaping up to be exciting, challenging and vexing. Your donation will help COA meet these important goals:

  • Keep our ocean free from harmful industry
  • Protect marine life from pollution and plastics
  • Keep you and your family safe from POO-llution
  • Thwart federal budget cuts and de-regulation of environmental protection
  • Coordinate this region for the national March for the Ocean 
  • Educate and guide NJ's new Governor and legislature
  • Take actions to reduce impacts from climate change

Please consider making a donation to COA's important work to protect and improve the waters and beaches of New York and New Jersey. 

Your year-end donation will ensure COA is geared-up, emboldened, and empowered to take on the year ahead. Together we can continue to protect our vibrant and healthier ocean.
