Make A Difference In 2009

Resolve to make a difference in 2009.

Your daily activities and habits have a tremendous impact on the environment. In the new year, make a resolution to enjoy, protect, and respect our aquatic world. Thoughtful choices today can improve the health of the environment and without drastically changing your lifestyle. Use one less plastic bag. Reduce, reuse and recycle. Volunteer during a field clean-up. Carpool. Together, let's ensure peace and prosperity for all creatures on our blue planet for years to come.
