Jacques Cousteau once said that "For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive;......he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it."
As many of you know, I have been involved with the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation for quite some time. Five years ago we opened the Blue Ocean Discovery Center at Hampton Beach and every year we educate more and more visitors . This past summer, nearly 19,000 people came through our door! Cousteau also said that "People protect what they love" and it is my hope that through our educational programs we can encourage people to protect and love the ocean and all the life that lives there.
Thank you in advance for donating to the Blue Ocean Society. Our mission is to protect marine life in the Gulf of Maine through research, education and inspiring action. I've enjoyed working very hard on the education part of the mission and I hope I have inspired many people to take action.
