The goal of this campaign is to advance effective implementation of the new National Ocean Policy established by President Obama through an executive order in July 2010. The policy includes nine priority objectives for which action plans are currently being developed by the National Ocean Council. The Surfrider Foundation is participating in the public process to inform development of these plans to ensure they will be robust and effective. We are also advocating for federal funding and legislation to help advance the goals of the policy.
