President Trump just released his proposed budget for funding the federal government for fiscal year 2018. Included are deep cuts to many ocean programs as well as the elimination of the Marine Mammal Commission, which helps to protect marine mammals and their ocean ecosystems.
If we don’t oppose these crippling cuts, ocean life like whales and dolphins, as well as fisheries, coastal economies and ocean habitats will suffer the consequences.
Make your voice heard to stop President Trump’s ocean-harming plans. His budget now goes to Congress, which will write the spending bills that determine next year’s federal budget.
Tell your members of Congress: Oppose President Trump’s proposed budget.
