Action in Paris

Please join us in our efforts to monitor the spread of radiation from Fukushima and its impact on the ocean.

Our goal is to raise the funds needed to continue to test our ocean waters for traces of cesium-134, the marker for Fukushima radiation.

Mothers for Peace has been working in conjunction with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to gather and analyze samples from the waters off our local coastline at Pismo Beach. Our $2,500 fundraising goal will allow for four more studies.
