Interconnected problems need interconnected solutions

r1 It’s time for lasting marine protections ... DONATE NOW
Paov, if I asked you to picture climate change and its impacts, what comes to mind?

Most often people think of wildfires, storms, and changing weather patterns on land. However, changes happen on land in part because the ocean is facing challenges as well.

Biodiversity loss, habitat loss, and rising temperatures are impacting the ocean and leading to further changes on land.

Interconnected problems need interconnected solutions. Please donate today to support thoughtful approaches to marine protection.
One thing is clear: The ocean needs to be protected to prevent further loss and harm.

My colleagues Erin, Georgia, and I work on Marine Protected Areas. We navigate complex jurisdictions and legal parameters. Marine Protected Areas act like parks on land, allowing ecosystems to recover, and species to thrive. We are working on supporting Indigenous governance and jurisdiction in Marine Protected Areas and throughout First Nations’ ocean territories.

No matter the marine issue that we’re tackling, we work knowing that ocean conservation is climate action.

Will you take action with us, and make a donation today?
Our relationship with the ocean is at stake. Cultural connections, food security, and climate impacts are all at stake. We can stand together and develop strong legal solutions for ocean conservation.

I’m proud to work with my team at West Coast because we understand that these interconnected problems require interconnected solutions.

Together, working through the complexities of the law and respecting Indigenous sovereignty, we can show the ocean that we care.

Paov, let’s show our love and respect for the ocean. Join us by making a donation today.

With gratitude,
