Tell President Obama to make conservation the foundation of his National Ocean Policy

There’s still a few more days for you to submit comments to the White House’s Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force. May we suggest some variation of the following letter:

Dear President Obama and the Ocean Policy Task Force,

Thank you for releasing the Interim Framework for Effective Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning. Our country needs comprehensive marine spatial planning to protect our oceans for us and for future generations. I support the new framework for managing ecosystems, and am glad to see that it is designed to protect and maintain healthy oceans. I hope that you will make conservation and wise stewardship the goals of our new National Ocean Policy, and require all federal agencies to comply with regional ocean plans.

Thank you again, and keep up the good work.
