Blue Frontier Campaign’s Seaweed Rebels and Ocean Explorers Roz Savage and Margo Pellegrino are two women effectively raising awareness on the threats the ocean faces and the need for conservation measures.
Margo Pellegrino Roz Savage
In 2010, Roz Savage finished the 3rd leg of her Pacific Ocean row (from Tarawa to Australia). She began her journey from San Francisco to Hawaii in 2008, continued from Hawaii to Tarawa in 2009, and has moved a number of constituents around the globe towards more awareness and better individual practices for ocean conservation. Please see www.rozsavage.com for more information.
Margo Pellegrino’s West Coast paddle took place from July to September 2010. Originally inspired by ’50 Ways to Save the Ocean,’ she has already paddled from Miami to Maine and, more recently, on the Gulf Coast from Miami to New Orleans. Her high public visibility paddling expeditions seek to advance federal ocean legislation, educate the public about ocean conservation, motivate and inspire people to get out and to take action by linking up with “seaweed” citizen-activists, promote the establishment of marine protected areas, and promote scientific research around ocean conservation.
