FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Angels of the Seas, a campaign focused on conservation projects, has launched a conservation contest to allow individuals, corporations, conservation groups, grass-roots organizations and tournaments to compete for honors for their efforts in conservation, the company stated in a press release.
The founder of Angels of the Seas, Betty Bauman, started the campaign in order to increase the number of conservation projects.
“Right now, especially with the Gulf Oil spill, the nation has become focused on the importance of marine conservation. It's time for those who make a difference to be recognized with a Nobel-style program,” she stated in the release.
Joining with Save Our Seas Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting conservation, the campaign allows organizations to submit their conservation projects for honors at the Miami Boat Show in February 2011 through Web-based entries into different categories. Organizations, individuals and groups can request an entry form by e-mailing AngelsOfTheSeas@gmail.com.
“We have decided to open this contest to the entire marine industry and organizations, as the more people we have starting conservation projects, the better it is for marine life," Bauman stated in the release.
