Nominate A National Seashore "Hero" For The "Ocean Heroes Contest"


Seen any heroes down at the beach lately? The folks at Oceana, a non-profit that works to protects oceans, are looking for some heros.

The organization is seeking nominations for its third annual Ocean Heroes Contest.  To nominate someone, just visit and complete the form. Past nominees have included educators, scientists, fundraisers, activists, and that’s just a start. A good candidate from the national park kingdom just might be Richard James, who spent a year collecting plastic bottles at Point Reyes National Seashore and then created an interesting way to display them to show beach-goers the problem with garbage.

The folks at Oceana have two categories for their competition: Adult and Junior (18 years old or younger).

This year’s Ocean Heroes will receive a $500 gift card from Nautica and a pair of Revo Sunglasses. All finalists will receive a $100 Nautica gift card.

Nominations end April 27th, but the faster you can get them in the better. So nominate, nominate, nominate.
