The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) have endorsed the April 22 March for Science. In their announcement, they affirm their status as a non-partisan organization, noting that "Standing up for science – as a process and an input to policy – should not be a partisan issue, either in perception or reality. Attacks on science have come from all parts of the political spectrum."
The March for Science is being organized in response to recent policy changes that have caused heightened concern among scientists, and the mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue.
ASLO joins a growing list of organizations to endorse the March, which also includes the American Geophysical Union.
