President Twilley addresses CERF policy actions in letter to members

CERF President Robert Twilley has written a letter to members in response to recent US federal policy developments that undermine science and science funding, and to the concerns raised by members in light of these threats. The letter, included in full below, has been reviewed by and receives the full support of the CERF Executive Committee.

In it, Dr. Twilley states that "…one of the most important messages resulting from threats to our profession as scientists, and to the organizations that use science to improve the quality of life in our society, is a renewed commitment to communicate the value of our work to constituents in our local communities every day. We have to commit to telling our story of how the science of healthy coastal ecosystems has value for all of society, and sustains our wealth as a nation." He also states, "the Executive Committee of CERF has endorsed the values of science in our society that are being promoted by the March for Science planned for Earth Day, April 22."
