It Was The Best of Times...
It isn't near often enough that we are able to gather such an impressive group of ocean champions all under the same roof, at the same time. A time when our country is experiencing unprecedented economic and political challenge, many leaders found solace in the prospect of ocean health last Tuesday evening. The Annual Ocean Champions gathering, honoring the work of top congressional champions, included Rep. Rahall, Rep. Farr, Rep. Capps, Rep. Gordon, Rep. Allen, Del. Bordallo, Rep. Barrow, Rep. Shays, Rep. Pallone, Senator Whitehouse and Senate Candidate Mark Begich. We were thrilled to be joined by leaders in the ocean conservation community, as well as ocean activists, writers, DC political strategists and celebrities in thanking and congratulating our current and future ocean champions.
What this tells us is that the environment matters. Ocean health matters. Protecting the future matters. And, no matter what bump we hit in the road, the prospect of jeopardizing our beautiful oceans is not an option. Of course, none of this would matter if it were not for you and your support of our work.
