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 www.oceana.org/heroes 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.
