Through October 2019 Ana Santa Maria Watson, from Flight Centres Calgary Market Mall location, is asking her colleagues to think about the health of our oceans and help raise funds to support research into ocean science. By recycling at home and keeping those bottles and cans out of our landfills and waterways we can help to raise funds to make the world just a little more perfect.
Donations large and small are welcomed below from local bottle drives across the country. This campaign will culminate with two Bow river clean up walks in downtown Calgary on October 21st and 26th 2019.
No matter where you live, you are directly affected by the health of our oceans. Our own personal health and livelihoods are interconnected with the wellbeing of the oceans. Tourism is just one of many industries that are dependent on the oceans for economic gain. In partnership with G Adventures, and supported by thousands of travellers across the world, Planeterra has been able to support organizations around the world that specialize in protecting the health of our oceans. Planeterra has invested nearly CAD $400,000 into these programs over the last six years through the Ocean Health Fund.
