Do you care about our coasts and oceans and the communities that depend on them? Do you want ocean wildlife to be protected? Do you want clean water and shores to fish, dive, surf, kayak, and swim?

If so, show up to the various public meetings going on in the Mid-Atlantic over the next couple of months, hosted by the newly formed Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body (RPB).  Let your voice be heard!

RPB Meeting

The RPB will be taking public comments on its role in managing the Mid-Atlantic’s coastal and ocean areas. This is a huge opportunity to protect your favorite coastal spot–don’t let other interests (like oil and gas) dominate these meetings!
