Overview

In the United States, 40% of the total population lives in coastal areas and 100% of the population benefits from healthy ocean ecosystems, starting with the air we breathe. Growing recognition of our inextricable connection to the ocean has inspired state lawmakers to advance policy that protects coastal habitats and harnesses the power of the ocean to fight climate change.
