The Ocean Guardian Pledge

Because I want to help the ocean and all the creatures that live in it and around its shores, I pledge today to do these things and accept membership into Nim's Ocean Guardian Kids Club:

  • Conserve water and other natural resources.
  • Reduce use. Reduce your eco-footprint, and reduce waste.
  • Reuse or repurpose products to extend their usable life.
  • Recycle, and use products made of recycled materials.
  • Be considerate of ocean wildlife and seabirds.
  • Clean up the beach, park, or river and leave it better than I found it.
  • Devote time every year to community service to benefit and beautify the environment.
  • Increase my own awareness of the effects that I have on the ocean and our environment.
  • Learn all I can about the environment, including special ocean areas like national marine sanctuaries.
  • Promote ocean awareness and pass on my knowledge to friends and family.
  • Encourage my family and friends to protect the ocean and our environment.
