Oceans on the brink, it's time to act

From Ben:

As Californians, we surf and sunbathe on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world -- sharing them with otters, seals, and sea creatures large and small.

Unfortunately, the delicate marine ecosystems are at risk -- wildlife populations are dropping fast. Environment California is working to establish protection for turtles, otters and other wildlife by establishing marine protected areas, which work like national parks in the ocean.

Right now, state officials are considering putting a new protected area off the San Diego shore, and we're working to make sure it happens. Please join me, and send an e-mail to the state commission today.
