Join the COAlition!

Clean Ocean Action is a collaborative group made up of organizations, businesses, citizens, and educators.  Since our beginnings in 1984, it has been with the energy, time, talent, experience, and support of the COAlition partners that we have been able to end ocean dumping, expand the Beach Sweeps, educate citizens, and contribute to meaningful water quality legislation, including the new fertilizer law to protect our waterways from excessive nitrogen pollution.  Our latest victory – defeating 3 proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) import projects off NJ’s coast – was truly an example of our coalition network at work and we couldn’t have done it without your help.

Despite our hard-won victories, the ocean remains threatened by harmful and polluting activities and continues to suffer from significant amounts of pollution.  When you join our COAlition, you will help continue to investigate sources of pollution and identify and advocate for solutions.  With the momentum from the LNG victories, COA will be continuing to push for the passage of the “New Jersey/ New York Clean Ocean Zone Act” (COZ) which is federal and bi-state legislation that will lock-in progress in ocean protection.

In joining as a Participating Organization, your group will be informed of issues and engaged in actions to proactively protect the ocean.  For a complete list of benefits and commitments, email or call 732-872-0111.  Together, we can continue to improve and protect the ocean!
