Ocean Defenders Alliance https://www.oceandefenders.org/
Ocean Defenders Alliance works to clean and protect marine ecosystems through documentation, education, and meaningful action. Working with affected communities, we focus primarily on the reduction and removal of man-made debris which poses serious threats to ocean wildlife and habitats.
ODA envisions a world in which we educate communities and involve them in solutions that help ensure marine ecosystems can exist free from harm caused by human debris. Without abandoned fishing gear, trash, and improperly sunken vessels damaging their habitat, marine flora and fauna will be able to thrive.
Clear Focus: We do not compromise our mission, yet strive to remain flexible and open to new ideas.
High Personal Standards: We operate from a foundation of integrity, respect, and honesty, and expect the same of others.
Value Relationships: We genuinely appreciate participation in and support of ODA's mission by our allies.
Continuous Improvement: To maximize our efforts, we continually evaluate our methods, seek opportunities to learn, adapt as needed, and otherwise strive to better ourselves.
Open Communication: In all relationships, we endeavour to share communications frequently, truthfully, in a timely manner, and from the heart.
Intelligent Planning: To best facilitate our mission, we act strategically - with forethought, diligence, and comprehensive analysis.
Inspire and Empower: With actions and through education, we raise awareness and motivate others to participate in making ODA's vision a reality.
Seek Collaboration: We recognize the value of diversity and seek to enhance our mission by including a broad cross-section of individuals, nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies.
Operating from ship and shore, ODA's all-volunteer boat and dive crews remove derelict fishing nets, traps, lines, plastic, and other man-made debris threatening ocean wildlife and habitats.
ODA has two main geographical areas of operation. We have boats, divers, and onshore volunteers stationed in Southern California and the Hawaiian Islands.
Protect Our Winters www.protectourwinters.org
Based on estimates in the 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, we have just over a decade to drastically curb our emissions to avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis. Staying at or below 1.5˚C means we have to slash our greenhouse gas emissions 45% below 2010 levels by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050.
We know, it sounds like a massive task. But we believe that solving the climate crisis is not only possible, but within our reach.
What will it take?
We believe it takes three things to solve the climate crisis:
- Technological & Financial Solutions: We must incentivize a clean energy future (think big-scale renewables and storage, tax credits and carbon pricing).
- Political Will: With the right people in public office, we can work with them to make climate a top policy priority.
- Cultural Shift: Our nation’s attitude about climate change needs to shift, so that not acting on climate is no longer an option.
Where we can help
The outdoor community (that’s you!) knows the importance of ultra-thin margins. The seemingly small efforts made at just the right moments carry enough weight to tip the scale from failure to success. Well, environmental and political history are also made at the margins. Did you know that just 77,000 votes in key districts won the 2016 presidential election? Or that only three Senate votes opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling?
Our theory of change hinges on the belief that the outdoor community can have a disproportionate impact by driving civic participation at those thin margins.
By focusing our efforts in critical geographies and creating local activations, we believe that we can educate, register and turn out enough voters to shift our nation’s response to the climate crisis.
To solve the climate crisis, the world needs our community. It’s the sum of our small efforts—where we turn our passion into purpose—and deliver climate victories where they’re needed most.
