The Ocean Watch Program is a free online resource that may be accessed through the Sailors for the Sea website. It provides a constant stream of updated articles on current ocean issues such as ocean acidification, plastics, nonpoint source pollution, and invasive species. Each essay is accompanied by information on how individuals can make a difference in relation to the issue, creating a linkage from knowledge to personal action. The Ocean Watch Program will also provide a calendar of activities, events and opportunities for people to take action to preserve protect and improve our oceans and coastal waters. These activities may include lectures, classes, or beach and ocean water clean ups. The Ocean Watch Program is readily available not just to sailors and members, but also to educators and the media.
