Save the vaquita porpoise and other marine species
On Monday, we will officially launch our most ambitious campaign this year, Operation Milagro III. This campaign aims to save the critically endangered vaquita porpoise from imminent extinction. We must raise the necessary funds to sustain this campaign and urgently need your help to save the vaquita.
We therefore ask that you mark your calendars for #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016 and use this time to help us save the vaquita. #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.
We invite you to join the movement with Sea Shepherd and to help "get out and give," this November 29th. Some ideas include:
- Build a fundraising page with your co-workers or friends to raise money for #GivingTuesday. Organize a run, walk or general fundraising effort that promotes Sea Shepherd and donate any funds raised, on November 29th.
- Change your social media profile picture on #Giving Tuesday to help spread the word about Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
- Simply donate on #GivingTuesday to help us save the vaquita porpoise and protect whales, sharks, sea turtles, dolphins and other marine species, throughout the year.
Our 40th anniversary year is approaching and while we have made great strides, there is still so much more work to do. With your help, we can save our oceans.
