You can help clean up our coast!

Your special gift will help reduce marine debris in a variety of ways. With the help of volunteers just like you, we’ll host 15 coastal clean-ups and recover thousands of lost crab pots each year, cleaning up hundreds of tons of trash. We’re also focusing on prevention: Your support will help guide a comprehensive strategy to address the issue, advocate for local ordinances and raise awareness in communities and classrooms.

Completing your donation below will help keep our coast clean and beautiful!

This gift provides unrestricted support for the federation’s work protecting and restoring our coast.
