JAWS donates 10% to saving our oceans...
JAWS has been a supporter of Oceana since 2005. Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Their offices in North America, South America and Europe work together on a limited number of strategic, directed campaigns to achieve measurable outcomes that will help return our oceans to former levels of abundance.
Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy and abundant as they once were. They look to a future in which dolphin sightings are common along any temperate coast; in which mighty marlins, sharks and tuna are abundant once again; in which whales and sea turtles thrive, cod are plentiful on both sides of the Atlantic, local fishing cultures thrive rather than decline and in which fish are a safe, growing and plentiful source of food around the world.
Oceans cover 71% of the globe and they are as important to us as they are vast. Not only do they control our climate, they are an essential source of protein for nearly half the people in the world. They drive our economies. For millions of sailors, swimmers and vacationers of all strips, they offer a refuge from the metal and concrete that encase our working lives. In the last few decades, we have seen the benefits of restored rivers and lakes - for ecological and economic health - in many parts of the world. We can reap the same benefits from healthy oceans. We can restore ocean ecosystems that will sustain us, entertain us, amaze us and generate jobs around the world for centuries to come.
This is why we at JAWS support the Oceana organization. They understand that not only do we need to preserve our oceans, but also see things from the business perspective and set their goals toward a balance between the two. We appreciate your support of JAWS products and wanted you to know when we say "JAWS donates 10% to saving our oceans"... where that 10% is going.
