Seacology News: December 2010 Archives

Happy Holidays from Seacology!

|

As the year draws to a close, Seacology wishes our supporters the best for the holiday season and New Year. Without you, we couldn't bring hope and change to the many islands around the world that need our help.

Over the past year, Seacology has launched 19 new island projects, bringing our total to 210 projects on 115 islands in 45 nations around the world.  Our 2010 projects protected nearly 10,000 acres of island terrestrial habitat and over 3,000 acres of marine ecosystems, saving endangered sea turtles, mangrove forests, and tropical rainforests. But with over a million islands on Earth, many of them threatened by commercial fishing and logging, and many more harboring some of the world's most exquisite and threatened plants and animals, we have our work cut out for us. We look forward to continuing our transformational work in the coming year.

For an overview of Seacology's activities in 2010 and the events that 2011 will bring, peruse our recent blog post.

If you are still in need of last-minute holiday gifts, consider honoring a loved one with Seacology's new Save an Acre program. For $40, you can protect an acre of coral reef or rainforest--a meaningful gift that will last a lifetime and beyond.

From all of us at Seacology, best wishes and many thanks for your ongoing support!

Every year, Seacology hosts a number of ceremonies, receptions, and other fundraising events. These functions provide a venue for our supporters to actively participate in Seacology's important cause, interact with staff and fellow donors, and learn about our most recent work.  They also allow us to cultivate interested individuals who may not yet know about Seacology.  As we close the door on 2010, Seacology's Development Department is taking a moment to appreciate the donor-attended events over the past year and consider our upcoming calendar. 

Making plans for the holidays? Consider giving a meaningful and lasting gift this year: Save an acre of rainforest or coral reef in honor of a loved one. Rainforests and coral reefs are filled with millions of diverse species, but they are two of the most endangered ecosystems on the planet. Every acre we save is crucial to their survival.

With Seacology's new Save an Acre program, your donation of $40 will protect an acre of endangered island ecosystem. You choose whether to save rainforest or coral reef, and we will send your recipient a personalized card of acknowledgment with a beautiful color photograph and exclusive information about the site they helped save. Donations will support Seacology projects protecting the Sitio Lobo Rainforest on Mindanao Island in the Philippines and the Muri Reef on Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.

Perfect for a sustainable holiday gift, the Save an Acre program is also ideal for birthdays, memorials, or gifts throughout the year. Learn more about the program and save an acre today at www.seacology.org/saveanacre
