If you live along the Maine coast of the Bay of Fundy, Vivian Newman of Sierra Club USA urges your participation. Please act now.
*************************
Tell the White House and the Governor that they must work together to manage our oceans **comprehensively**, rather than by one human use at a time. This holistic approach is critical for intelligent siting of offshore energy projects that are in the works now, if, that is, we want to protect essential habitat and migration routes for marine life.  It is also high time to designate Marine Protected Areas.
