Heal the Bay is a charitable organization based in California.
From their "About" page:
"WHEN WE HEAL THE EARTH, WE HEAL OURSELVES"
Who has heard the soothing sound of crashing surf, smelled the crisp salty sea air, basked in the warmth of the sun overhead and sand under foot, relished the joy of catching the perfect wave, felt an angler's excitement from the tug of the fishing line, returned from an invigorating shore swim, delighted in the sighting of a passing pod of dolphins, or watched in quiet awe the beauty of an ocean sunset, and not been inspired to hold and keep these experiences dear?
Our rivers, our beaches and our ocean are incredible natural resources that serve as special spiritual sanctuaries. But our coast provides not only intangible, emotional value, a healthy marine ecosystem also serves as a critical source of real economic wealth in southern California, from the bounty of seafood, recreation and tourism it provides. When we protect the watersheds in which we all live, from the most inland neighborhood streets to the furthest edge of the sea, we protect our own well being.
Since 1985, people like you who care about our rivers, beaches and oceans have been a part of Heal the Bay's fight to make Southern California coastal waters and watersheds, including Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean.
Sailors for the Sea
Sailors for the Sea is a leading conservation organization that engages, educates, inspires and activates the sailing and boating community toward healing the ocean. We are a movement and pragmatic voice for action that offers boaters tangible opportunities to create a legacy and make a difference.
Since its start in 2004 by lifelong friends and sailors David Rockefeller, Jr. and David Treadway, Sailors for the Sea has been harnessing the wind in the collective sail of ocean conservation. As a result, one-by-one, boaters are becoming catalysts for change.
It’s clear that the ocean is in crisis. Environmental challenges like plastic waste, acidification, climate change and toxic chemicals are not only threatening marine life, but our health—and the health of our children and the planet for generations to come.
Sailors for the Sea was founded as a collective rallying cry for a community that loves and is passionate about protecting the ocean. Together we are one voice. One legacy. And the momentum behind a sea change.
