Do you love the ocean? Help us show the world how important it is to protect it by sharing a photo that represents your love of our ocean!

We want to see photos of your day at the beach, waterway clean-up, surfing escapade, fishing expedition, or anything that captures what the ocean means to you. Snap a new moment, or share a favorite memory.

Post your photo to your favorite social media platform using the hashtag #OurOcean2014 or add it to the OurOcean2014 group on Flickr.  We will be keeping an eye out for photos using the hashtag and will choose some of the photos to be featured at the Our Ocean conference in Washington on June 16-17.

No matter where we live, we all depend on our ocean for the food we eat and the air we breathe.  Learn more about what you can do to protect our ocean at and join our Thunderclap today to make your voice heard!
