Giving to Heal the Ocean is an incredibly rewarding experience. Our family is impressed with the impact and leverage our contribution makes. Dollars turn into action. Under the leadership and vision of Hillary Hauser, Heal the Ocean has shaped legislation that will change polluting practices. Heal the Ocean articulates a clear and precise plan for how we should THINK and ACT towards the ocean. The members of the Heal the Ocean community help us express how we FEEL about a beautiful day at the beach. This is a winning organization.

Heal the Ocean is making a significant difference in cleaning up the ocean in Santa Barbara County. It is very well managed and maintains its focus on reducing polution in the ocean. The organization gets projects done as witnessed by the Carpenteria area beach front sewer project.

Heal the Ocean is doing exactly that -"healing the ocean". They have become a wonderful voice to all those who enjoy our beautiful oceans by drawing attention to the many ways we can help heal the water. Starting with a major household septic system to sewer project at the world famous Rincon surf break, they have become the "go to" organization for identifying sources of pollution going into our water and how to mitigate these pollution problems. They have worked with many governmental agencies on why they need to upgrade sewage treatment plants and then help find grants to finance these upgrades. Heal the Ocean's library of scientific tests, observations and expert testimony in cases involving ocean pollution are used by many agencies to focus on pollution sources and ways to mitigate these problems. We all are benefiting from the work they have done and are doing. The ocean can no longer just be a dump for all our waste and Heal the Ocean is doing the work to make us all become aware of how clean our oceans can and should be. Thank you Heal the Ocean.
