Environmental Outreach Program
Established in 2013, the U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFFC) sponsored 'Stewards of the Sea: Defending Freedom, Protecting the Environment' outreach program and interactive exhibit educates key stakeholders on the Navy's environmental policy and initiatives, and to increase support for its training and basing activities among public, scientific and regulatory communities. Since then, the program has expanded nationally, reaching hundreds of thousands of visitors through its permanent, portable and traveling exhibits.
The Department of the Navy environmental programs play a vital role in the achievement of our National Defense Strategy. The Navy conducts numerous conservation, restoration, innovation and sustainment efforts to protect the environment, while fulfilling the Navy’s readiness mission.
