Maine shores and coastal wetlands are home to many species of water fowl and other coastal wildlife. The treasured sandy beaches provide vacation destinations and recreation that sustain Maine’s tourism industry.

The coastal ecosystem of Maine has a delicate balance. We believe that we should make every effort to maintain and protect the environmental integrity of our shores in a manner that is both respectful of private ownership of coastal properties and for the preservation of our shores and coastal wetlands.

We hope that you believe, like us, that we should take action to preserve our beautiful Maine shores and coastal wetlands. The efforts we make to save our shores will be the legacy we leave to Maine’s future generations.

S.O.S. Maine is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
