The Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Daylight carries on into the evening and, across much of the country, the air is hot, still and sticky. During this long, mid-summer stretch nothing sounds better than dipping our toes in a cool river or dodging waves in the ocean.
 
Luckily, there are a number of organizations that are committed to protecting our rivers, lakes, and oceans, to ensure they are clean and accessible when we want to take a quick dip. From organizing beach cleanups to changing public policy, the charities featured in this list are working at the local, national, and international levels to conserve our waters. They advocate for the people who enjoy them, and the plants and animals who call them home.
 
Take a few moments to learn more about these highly-rated organizations and the work they are doing to keeping our waterways and oceans healthy and enjoyable for future generations. And, if the beach is a place you find comfort during these long, dog days, consider supporting one of these great charities today. You can give confidently knowing they are achieving their missions while upholding the highest standards for financial health and accountability and transparency.
