Help our beloved, 42-year strong organization navigate this crisis and get back to saving our shores.
Even as we weather these difficult times, our fragile marine ecosystem is depending on us.
However, the shelter-in-place guidelines — necessitating event cancellations and altering our grant-funded work — have been a tough blow for Save Our Shores. Our small and scrappy team is currently adhering to "social distancing" guidelines and working minimal hours with minimal pay in an attempt to stretch our limited financial reserves. Please consider making a donation and sharing our campaign to help ensure our beloved, 42-year strong organization can navigate this crisis and continue bringing our community together to protect all that makes life here so special.
While it may be the last thing on our minds at the moment, we must be careful not to take the health of our magnificent marine sanctuary for granted. Behind the veil of the coronavirus, federal air and water pollution standards are being suspended, science is being ignored, and our already vulnerable marine ecosystem may soon face even greater risks. Meanwhile 'leveling the curve' on the "plastic pandemic" detailed in the March 2020 issue of Rolling Stone has become more challenging than ever as stores and people become fearful of reuseable items.
Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates on digital activism opportunities and gatherings. When beach access is safe and legal, we also encourage individuals and those sheltering in place together to download Save Our Shores' Marine Tally Beach Cleanup app (Apple, Google) and check out our Safe Social Distancing Cleanup Guidelines to help individuals and families extend care and compassion to our local beaches.
