The Tijuana Estuary and Ocean Need Your Help! Take Action Now!

Take Action Now!

We need you to ask the California State Legislature to help protect critical habitat for endangered species and marine wildlife and to support healthy beaches in San Diego!


CA state parks struggle each year to identify funding to maintain and operate the sediment basins at Goat Canyon in Border Field State Park. This year they have submitted a Budget Change Proposal to secure the much needed 1.1 million dollars to fund the basin's Operation & Maintenance. 

Please ask the California state Legislature to support the 3-year proposal for $1 million annual funding to maintain the Goat Canyon Sediment Basins as included in the Governor’s 2013- 2014 Budget.

The current proposal has been amended by the CA State Assembly on March 20, 2013 and an upcoming decision will be made by the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review on this proposal. We need you to write our California Senators and urge them to support the proposal.
