Pledge/vote on World Oceans Day at Oceana!

We’re pleased to announce that on World Oceans Day, Oceana is honoring those who have made a significant, ongoing contribution to ocean conservation.

This year, our very own Jay Holcomb, IBRRC’s executive director, has been nominated as an “ocean hero”. The group had hundreds of heroes nominated, and a panel of experts selected a handful of adult and junior finalists. Vote here

Also, for every pledge made, Oceana will receive a $1 donation.

Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation. They have offices in North America, Central America, South America and Europe. The group campaigns to help return the world’s oceans to former levels of abundance. It uses a science, law and celebrities to help get its message across to the general public. Read more
