Dear , 

 

Among the proudest elements of our work at Marine Conservation Institute is strengthening marine conservation through partnerships.

Our conservation partnership with Holland America Line takes a variety of forms. We worked to revamp their seafood sourcing, so that 800,000 guests eat only sustainably-sourced fish and shellfish. We partnered to produce the Our Marvelous Oceans video series to educate and inform their guests. And Holland America Line helps support the newest generation of marine scientists through the Mia J. Tegner Memorial Research Grants in Marine Environmental History and Historical Marine Ecology. 2012 winners were announced on World Oceans Day:
  • Canan Çakırlar, "Pre-historic exploitation of the eastern Mediterranean seascape."
  • Jock Currie, "Reconstructing baselines prior to industrial fishing in South Africa" 
  • Luis A. Huckstadt, "Is a century of human intervention enough to change the ecology of an Antarctic marine top predator:  the Weddell seal?" 
  • Alexis M. Jackson, "Molecular approaches to  monitor population and Marine Protected Areas on commercial species lacking baseline data."
On July 28th, Marine Conservation Institute and Holland America Line will celebrate our partnership with an elegant luncheon and program on Deep Sea Corals, on the ms Westerdam in Seattle.

There is still time to join us! RSVP online before July 23rd for Deep Sea Corals: The West Coast's Forgotten Treasures, or call 425.274.1180 or email us for more information!
This event is hosted by Marine Conservation Institute and funded through the generous support of Holland America Line.
