"Must Want to Save the World"

They make no apologies for their absolute devotion to the ocean. 

“What the Ocean Outfall Group does…is tackle the big, scary issues no one else will touch with a ten foot pole. Issues like SEA WATER DESALINATION, SEISMIC TESTING, NAVY SONAR, INDUSTRIAL SEA WATER INTAKES, and even that little handle on your toilet bowl.”

“Our mission at OOG is to educate the citizens and their elected and appointed officials about the impact human activities have on the ocean, both industrial and recreational...

“...OOG uses diplomacy as well as direct action...Our members educate themselves, attend meetings, and speak with passion and eloquence. Our one requirement for members? MUST WANT TO SAVE THE WORLD."

On August 16, 2014 the group will host a Thank You Whales celebration that includes speakers, workshops and exhibits, concluding with  a Sunset Ceremony, led by Fred Collins, Tribal Administrator, Northern Chumash Tribal Council, ‘Sunset Blessings," and Brother Michael J. Phillips, Benedictine Monk, ‘Flower Ceremony.'
