World Oceans Day Resolution in Rhode Island!

Victory | June 04 2015

Ocean Protection

The Surfrider Foundation Rhode Island Chapter submitted a letter of support for a resolution to formally recognize June 8, 2015, as World Oceans Day.

The resolution was championed by The Ocean Project and supported by the Chapter as an effective way to draw statewide attention to the need to protect and enjoy the ocean, waves & beaches we all love.

The House & Senate passed identical resolutions, HB6283 & S0965, on June 4, 2015.

The Surfrider Foundation works to protect our ocean and address the dangers to it, today and in the future. Our Ocean Protection Initiative includes grassroots campaigns to establish and support Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), oppose new offshore oil drilling and seismic testing, participate in regional ocean planning, and ensure renewable ocean energy does not damage our ocean.
