With the holidays behind us, perhaps you are feeling a bit blue? Why not take advantage of that feeling by wearing blue for the oceans on January 13 and joining us at one of many events being planned from coast to coast! Everyone is encouraged to wear the color blue on Wednesday – whether it’s a pair of blue surf shorts in sunny Hawaii, or, given the nation’s recent cold snap, a blue coat — to show support for a national oceans policy!

Our oceans provide us with 50% of the oxygen we breathe, awe inspiring beauty, delicious food, and lots of fun. It’s time to celebrate them and show our support for a national ocean policy by wearing blue on January 13! 

Last year President Obama commissioned an Interagency Task Force to develop a recommendation for a national ocean policy, as well as a framework for marine spatial planning. The Task Force is almost finished with its job, and it will be up to President Obama to issue an Executive Order officially creating a policy. He will need to hear from everyone concerned about our oceans in order to ensure a strong National Ocean Policy.

Here’s how you can show your support:
