The mission of the Colorado Ocean Coalition is to create, unite and empower a Colorado coalition with shared values, goals and actions to promote healthy oceans through education and community engagement.
Until now, there has never been a unified voice for ocean protection in the Mountain States. The Colorado Ocean Coalition believes that you don’t have to be near the ocean to care about it.
What we care about
We want to engage scientists, activists, divers, businesses and ocean supporters to address current threats and solutions that include:
-Over Fishing/Sustainable Seafood
-Climate Change and Ocean Acidification
-Watershed Protection and Health
-Marine Protected Areas
-Special species focus (whales, sharks, tuna, turtles, etc.)

Blue Vision Summit 2013 From Florida to Washington DC. I am now here at the Blue Vision Summit. Today is my 3rd time visiting capitol hill and lobbying our legislatures for conservation. We started off the day being greeted by ocean champions, senators and more. We then broke off into smaller groups. I was able to meet with the entire Hawaii delegation and met with Senator Schatz. I also met with California delegation including Barbara Boxer, and my representative John Campbell. They were all very receptive to all the work the Wyland Foundation is doing, along with our conservation partners. The Blue Vision Summit is where environmental groups and individuals converge every two years and share information and work together for the protection of our water planet. I hope you’ll check out all the good work that is being done and showing us at the next Blue Vision Summit. You can find out more about the Blue Visions Summit at http://www.bluefront.org/blue_vision_blog/welcome/. Oops! Gotta jump back into another meeting. Aloha, see you soon!
