Congratulations to Oceans Initiative

Oceans Initiative has been selected as the recipient of our 2016 Founders’ Award.

Oceans Initiative uses cutting-edge science and is on a mission to protect marine life, including whales, dolphins, sharks, salmon & seabirds, in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Sustainable Path board member Nan McKay noted that “The board wanted to celebrate Oceans Initiative becoming an official 501(c)(3) in Washington State and to support their important research to improve protection of marine mammals in the Salish Sea.” 

Oceans Initiative was co-founded by Erin Ashe and Rob Williams.  dolphin2
