Marine Grant Program Open Now through May 1/Winners Announced on World Oceans Day, June 8th
WATSONVILLE, Calif. (March 6, 2013) In support of its ongoing efforts to improve and conserve the marine environment, West Marine is seeking applications for Marine Conservation Grants. There will be five to ten grants awarded in amounts ranging from $500 -$5000 per recipient. Applications are available online at www.westmarine.com/bluefuture. The closing date for entries is May 1, 2013 and the winners will be announced on World Oceans Day, June 8, 2013.

The 2013 grants are focused on projects that enhance fish populations including: (1) engaging anglers in data collection, (2) enhancing marine habitats, and (3) educating anglers about barotrauma. The grants are awarded through a formal application process in which interested organizations must submit their proposal directly to West Marine. All applications will be reviewed by the Marine Conservation Action Team (MCAT).

Preference will be given to organizations that have neighboring West Marine stores and engage Associates and Customers in conservation and data collection efforts. Those applying must show sound financial policies and management and scientific substantiation.

Since 1994, West Marine has donated nearly $5,000,000 to non-profit organizations that support youth boating, boating safety and the marine environment. For more information about the Marine Conservation Grants program, please visit www.westmarine.com/bluefuture.
