Scared For Sharks and Other Heroes At Oceana

Sacred For Sharks

Oceana consistently leads the pack in ocean conservation outreach. Their tremendous web presence – as well as a blog – recently expanded to include a new campaign. Scared For Sharks features a new ocean hero, January Jones from the teevee series Mad Men. Now.. I hardly have the time for teevee these days.. I’m too wrapped in all my miscellaneous ocean projects but if Ms. Jones can lend her voice and make shark conservation a conversation at the dinner table then I’m all for it!

Oceana is also running an online vote for its 2009 Ocean Hero Award. There are a slew of deserving heroes listed from students with a passion for sea turtles to a shark education specialist! Get your vote in this weekend. The winner will be announced on World Oceans Day – June 8th!
