Summary: Ocean and coastal acidification threatens marine ecosystems and the coastal communities that rely on them. The U.S. EPA’s Ocean and Coastal Acidification Program promotes awareness and conducts research and long-term monitoring to mitigate impacts of acidification and develop solutions. States play a critical role in guarding their coastlines against local causes of acidification.

Hear from three states who have successfully enacted state legislation on ocean and coastal acidification as they share their experience and discuss actions that have been implemented to address acidification in their state.
