Your donation to Clean Ocean Access helps us to achieve our goals of eliminating marine debris, improving coastal water quality, and protecting and preserving shoreline access. With the support of our community, we have removed 133,488 pounds of marine debris from our shoreline, collected 8,637 water samples since 2006, monitored 50 public rights-of-way on Aquidneck Island and engaged with over 10,000 students in experiential environmental education to inspire ocean stewardship since 2013. We couldn’t have done it without you.

“Clean Ocean Access has enhanced the community and coastal environment for all residents and visitors to Aquidneck Island, which benefits us in all aspects of our lives from the enjoyment of the area when sailing to walking beaches to the value of our home to feeling connected with our community in supporting something greater than ourselves” – PETER HOWLAND, PORTSMOUTH, RI
