HELP US RESTORE OCEAN HEALTH...
Right now, the National Marine Fisheries Service is developing new rules to end overfishing and rebuild depleted fish populations in the United States. In order to be sure that these rules are strong enough, we are encouraging people to send postcards to the agency that encourage them to require conservative catch limits and establish strong accountability measures in order to sustain fish populations.
(I have uploaded the postcard PDF to the "files" section of this Meetup at http://environment.meetup.com/27/files - any help you can offer with getting them signed would be greatly appreciated).
The Conserve Our Ocean Legacy (COOL) campaign has been invited to set up a booth at the Warped Tour concert at the Nassau Coliseum THIS SATURDAY, August 4th, where we will distribute information and collect signatures to help restore America's ocean ecosystems.
We need volunteers to man the booth in the Action Tent and to canvass the crowd to help us collect signatures from 9:00AM until 6:00PM. A few hours of your time will make a big difference!
If you are interested, please contact me right away at tara.oceanlegacy @ gmail.com with the following information:
- Full name(s)
- Cell phone number
- Email address
- Shift availability
- Number of clipboards or chairs you can bring
I will reply promptly with more details.
