News from Living Oceans

I received this interesting email from the Living Oceans Society:

Share the ocean’s glory


One of the best things about summer is enjoying life outside in the great outdoors. Imagine being out on the ocean, the sun glittering like diamonds on the waves, the clouds floating lazily overhead, whale calls carrying across the water.

We’d love for you to share some of that natural beauty with us in our Oceans Exposures photo contest. We’ll use your pictures of the ocean to share its glory with as many people as possible.

If you submit a photo you could win a great prize like a $100 gift card from Mountain Equipment Co-op, a print of Eagle Dance from renowned Vancouver Island photographer, Dan Hillert, valued at over $300 or other great prizes.

Send us your snapshots taken on or near one of Canada’s three oceans—-or under them, if you’re keen to win a pair of Mantaray Fins from Nanaimo Dive Outfitters.

Karen WristenThe contest closes on September 30. We’ll announce the winners on our website, newsletter and Facebook page in October.

This year we have a special category: Keep It Clean: Mapping Support for a Tanker-Free Coast, an interactive map on our web site that we’ll use to show politicians that an overwhelming majority of B.C. residents don’t want tankers on our coast.

It appears that the federal government may be softening its hard line stance and distancing itself from the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal that threatens to bring hundreds of super tankers to the coast each year. Now more than ever we need people to tell politicians that this pipeline is not in Canada’s best interest.

You can help us do this by sharing your opinion about oil tankers on our coast in the form of a photo. Get artsy while conveying the message that you want to protect the ocean from the threat of super tankers. See what other people have done to get inspired.
