“Marine Life Studies a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching and inspiring the public to protect our oceans, whales and dolphins. This is a rare opportunity to meet some of our Ocean Stewards who are enrolled in our Research Scientist Program and Marine Life Studies Take it to the Streets™ Coastal Cleanup. It is thrilling to be working with such enthusiastic young people and it gives me great hope for the future of our oceans and the marine wildlife", states Peggy Stap, Marine Life Studies Founder and Executive Director.
Come and hear first-hand how these programs have made a difference in the lives of our college and high school interns. Stephanie Marcos, a college intern from California State University Monterey Bay, started with us last spring during Earth Month, with Take it to the Streets™, in downtown Monterey. She has continued as an Ocean Steward in our weekly community cleanups. Stephanie wrote, “By participating in Take it to the Streets™ Community Cleanup, it has made me realize that only two hours a week makes a significant difference. I now pick up waste and other products when I am out in public because I know it can potentially flow into the ocean.” Also come and meet our newest Ocean Steward, Sarah Colosimo, who traveled all the way from Melbourne, Australia after learning about Marine Life Studies research and conservation programs.
Flip for Whales™ activities includes a guided whale watch and continental breakfast with mimosas aboard High Spirits, a 60’ ft. yacht with Blue Ocean Whale Watch, a raffle, liveauction, and complimentary gift bag.
