Our mission is to protect the habitat of Puget Sound tidelands from the underregulated expansion of new and intensive shellfish aquaculture methods. These methods were never anticipated when the Shoreline Management Act was passed. They are transforming the natural tideland ecosystems in Puget Sound and are resulting in a fractured shoreline habitat. In South Puget Sound much of this has been done with few if any meaningful shoreline permits and with limited public input. It is exactly what the Shoreline Management Act was intended to prevent.

Get involved and contact your elected officials to let them you do not support aquaculture's industrial transformation of Puget Sound's tidelands.

Palau proposes the first National Marine Sanctuary - You Can Help

Palau - A National Marine Sanctuary


Palau is poised to make history by establishing the world’s first Nation-wide Marine Sanctuary – designating its entire ocean territory as a regenerative zone for sharks, whales, tuna, and countless other precious species. (from Palau Oceans)

 
You can help to support the creation of the first National Marine Sanctuary by donating on indiegogo's web site through the "Stand With Palau" campaign. Included in those supporting the creation of a protected marine environment is Peter Prows, Drakes Bay Oyster Company's attorney. Take a stand and help preserve one of the world's great bodies of water.
