World Oceans Day is a perfect time to commit to protecting our precious seas and thier inhabitants. Learn how as a boater you can make a difference to help restore the health of our waterways. 

Eyes on the Water

plastic pollution, plastics, marine debris

Plastics, oil sheens, entangled sea creatures, declining marine habitat – sailors and boaters witness firsthand these devastating threats that impact our oceans. Being intimately connected to our seas, boaters are ideally positioned to be advocates and leaders for protecting our waterways. The Green Boating Initiative mobilizes the sailing and boating community to take direct action to address these ocean health issues and protect marine environments worldwide. 

Knowledge is Power
