Mid-Atlantic Seascape

Campaign for #OurOcean

Are you among the more than 57 million people who live, work, and play along the coastline of our mid-Atlantic seascape?

Stretching from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to Montauk Point, New York, this densely developed and populated slice of America gives way to coastal bays, barrier islands, deep submarine canyons, and open-ocean and seafloor habitats extending offshore across the continental shelf.

Our ocean is a vast place. But it is becoming increasingly busy, and ocean sprawl threatens to crowd nature out.

The Nature Conservancy’s Campaign for #OurOcean encourages you to think about everything the sea provides for nature and people.  What does the ocean mean to you?  Share your thoughts with us on Facebook and Twitter - don't forget to use the hashtag #OurOcean! Tell us why you care about the ocean and all the ways that you enjoy, depend on, and benefit from it. 

In the features below, explore our ocean and learn how the Conservancy and our partners are improving the science and decision-making related to its management. Working together, we can understand how to use our ocean without using it up.
