I would like to invite all water enthusiasts to come and be part of the evening. It will be around one and a half hours plus question time and will cover a few different subjects. It will give those wanting to know more information about what the Sea Shepherd UK stands for, how to help our aquatic environment, it will give you the opportunity to ask questions, and find out how you can get involved. There will be more information about the event, please let me know if you are interested in joining so we can accommodate the numbers. The best contact at the moment is firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is Sea Shepherds missions statement for a bit about what they stand for:
Sea Shepherd UK is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
Sea Shepherd UK uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced oceanic ecosystems, Sea Shepherd UK works to ensure their survival for future generations.
