#OceanDayCA is an incredible meeting of concerned individuals, groups, and NGOs who all love the ocean, the communities that depend on it, and the creatures that inhabit it. Last month, a team of Turtle Island Restoration Network staff made the trek to Sacramento, California to lobby on behalf of oceans everywhere.

We gathered at the California State Capitol and lobbied our representatives about why oceans matter to us, to the world, and to future generations. Scroll down to read stories about our representatives and the issues we brought to the table.

Reducing plastic pollution.

Straws shouldn’t be in our oceans!
