Puget Sound: We Love You Campaign Members
Youth Campaign Members manage the Puget Sound: We Love You campaign, a youth-run effort to inspire love and conservation of Puget Sound. PS: We Love You focuses on conservation grounded in science, and aims to involve the public by promoting understanding and appreciation of Puget Sound’s aquatic inhabitants. Check out our Facebook page to learn more.
PS: We Love You members creatively involve the community in marine conservation at a local level. Campaign members create and curate content for our blog, Twitter and Facebook page, organize and participate in conservation events, and explore other opportunities for community-based conservation. If you are a self-starter, work well within a team, and are motivated to improve the health of Puget Sound, attend an upcoming orientation to receive an application. Prospective members must be in grades 10-12 at time of application.
Campaign members meet weekly to plan events, create social media content, and participate in continuing education with Aquarium staff and guest instructors. The campaign also takes frequent field trips to scientific and educational facilities, beaches and watersheds, and for conservation and restoration events.
Our next orientations will take place on:
- Saturday, March 15 from 2pm to 3pm at the Seattle Aquarium
- Tuesday, March 18 from 6pm to 7pm at the Seattle Aquarium
To reserve your place at orientation, or if you have specific questions about the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
