Project Description:

The goal of the Sierra Club’s Our Wild California Campaign is to create a powerful grassroots movement to protect the state’s public lands and waters and connect people to the great California outdoors for the benefit of both. California and the country as a whole are facing serious threats to the natural environment. The current federal administration threatens to undo decades of progress by cutting back 11 of California’s national monuments and national marine sanctuaries. This grant will support immediate efforts to stop new oil drilling in federal waters off the coast of California, protecting current and proposed marine monuments and sanctuaries, our coastal economy, communities, and wildlife by mobilizing a strong public response to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM’s) proposed five-year drilling plan.
