The American Littoral Society promotes the study and conservation of marine life and habitat, protects the coast from harm, and empowers others to do the same. Since 1961 the Society has empowered people to care for the coast through advocacy, conservation, and education. The Society not only provides a voice for the coast, but also gives concerned citizens the knowledge and tools they need to also raise their voices.
