Recently, we asked our staff at The Ocean Foundation to tell us their favorite memories of the water, ocean, and coasts — and why they are working to make the ocean better for all life on earth.

Now it’s your turn.

We want to hear from you — as part of our ocean community. What are your favorite memories with the ocean? Why do you care about a healthy ocean and coasts? Tell us your story, and we’ll select some to feature on our social media platforms — and throughout our CommYOUnity Foundation campaign.
