Honoree 2017: Dolphins & Porpoises
The community has spoken:
PBC’s 2017 honoree is the Dolphin and the Porpoise!
Although porpoises and dolphins are a protected species, these marine mammals are known to be hunted for food or as bait for other marine animals. In commercial areas porpoises and dolphins may end up getting caught in fishing nets or other types of fishing equipment. They may also become sick due to oil or other toxic chemicals that are spilled into our seas and oceans.
This is why this year, we will be dedicating our efforts and all our educational programs toward what we can do, as a community, to help these poor cetaceans.
So, “Let’s Make a Splash: End Trash!”
