The Marine Mammal Center Hosts Roundtable Discussion to Launch California Coastal Caucus
- Climate change
On August 20, The Marine Mammal Center was pleased to welcome Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33) and Congressman Jared Huffman (CA-02) for the official launch of the California Coastal Caucus. The Congressmembers were joined by leaders from The Marine Mammal Center – the world’s largest marine mammal hospital – for a roundtable discussion on the importance of the ocean in the fight against climate change.
This was the official launch of the California Coastal Caucus, which seeks to bring together members of the California House delegation to share and discuss federal policies to address matters of importance on the 840-mile California coast, including issues relating to the environment and the economy. The Center has been a strong advocate for the creation of the caucus, working closely with Representatives Lieu and Julia Brownley, co-chairs of the California Coastal Caucus, and Representative Huffman.
“The formation of the California Coastal Caucus is a critical step in addressing environmental and economic issues along our state’s coastline,” says Dr. Jeff Boehm, CEO of The Marine Mammal Center. "We are proud to lend our support to help find solutions to protect our shared ocean home for future generations."
