“How can we inspire communities to recognize that the ocean belongs to all of us?”
Kentucky Heirs To Our Oceans is working hard to be a part of the Inland Ocean Coalition. We adopted their principles and visions : "We are an inland movement that builds land to sea stewardship. Our vision is to support citizens and communities to take an active role in improving the impacts and relationships between the inland, the coastal, and the ocean.
Those who live among mountains, rivers and inland cities have a direct impact on the cycle of life in the ocean. The changes we need to make to address the largest threats facing our seas—lowering carbon emissions, reducing trash and pollution, eating sustainable seafood, safeguarding watersheds, promoting marine protected areas (MPAs)—can happen from anywhere in the world."
