About the wonderful volunteers you’ll be coordinating

Our volunteers research media and organizational contacts that we'll connect with at various stages of our Children Save Ocean United Nations project, initiated by concerned children to clean the ocean. These contacts will be instrumental in enabling us to extend our reach and transform our idea into a vibrant reality empowering children and stepping up protection of our oceans. The project is called The Last Whale -the title of the giant sculpture that started it all. If we don’t revolutionize our approach to ocean pollution, there may very well be a last whale.
