seas the day by pledging to make a difference. Spend time this month thinking about how your daily actions affect our ocean planet. No matter where you live, you are connected to the ocean, and your impacts do make a difference. Commit to taking simple actions on a regular basis to reduce your impact on the earth and conserve it for the children of the future. To make it easier for you, we have developed the Seven C's Pledge, where you can make a personal commitment and find information on how you can play your part. Also, check our Take Action site as often as possible to find daily eco tips and links.

A visit to your local Zoo, Aquarium, or Museum (ZAM) can help you to understand the importance and appreciate the beauty of life found in our ocean and of life upstream and downstream in your watershed. Become a member of your favorite organization and support environmental conservation and education. As a ZAM member you can get up close with the animals, explore fascinating exhibits, and get inspired all year round. In turn they will help you to get involved with local conservation efforts and volunteering opportunities. Find your local ZAM and join now.
