OA Alliance member, the Gullah/Geechee Nation, encompasses Sea Islands in the Atlantic Ocean spanning from Jacksonville, North Carolina to Jacksonville, Florida. Gullah/Geechee native people have witnessed first-hand many of the changes that are happening to oceans and know that there are already unprecedented damages to oceans and marine ecosystems.

The leaders of the Gullah/Geechee Nation released their OA Action Plan on March 22, World Water Day.

The OA Alliance has made a commitment to support the development of 20 OA Action Plans by the end of 2019, and we look forward to hearing from you about your own progress towards this goal.
