March 25th marked the 10th annual "Oceans Day" in the California State Capitol, where ocean advocacy groups met with state decision makers to educate them on the major issues effecting our ocean, including marine debris, oil drilling, marine protected areas, once-through cooling and more.
Along with staff, Surfrider Foundation activists Ximena Waissbluth, Michael Stewart, Jen Savage and Colleen Clifford participated in the event, which culminated in a 3-D showing of Jean Michel Cousteau's "Under the Sea" at the Sacramento IMAX theatre, as well as honoring Cousteau, Lieutenant Governor Garamendi, and Senator Fran Pavley for their commitment to helping the Clean Seas Coalition and for prioritizing ocean issues in the Capitol.
