Once we have our own boats and full time crews, we will have a significant impact on America;s coastlines.
Our employees will all be trained for proper handling of plastics, trash, medical waste, oil and chemicals.
There is a strong need for this work to be done. Plastic waste, previously thought to be indestructible, has since been found to break down within a year of the trash hitting the sea water.
After every significant coastal storm there are people who need to be removed from impacted areas and safety forces and supplies that need to be brought in. Having boats and crews familiar with operating in shallow water under difficult conditions can save lives and make a difference in an area’s post storm emergency response.
Wounded Nature’s publicity will educate people about the need for keeping our beaches, estuaries, and oceans clean. Our blogs, press releases, and media appearances will repetitively stress these points.
During each segment of the trip we can offer one billet to someone working in marine research. This could include a scientist, student, aquarium curator, or book author.
Media and Public Relations
Media and Public Relations combined with education are just as important as actually cleaning up the beaches. Training the public not to discard their trash will save as many marine animals as removing the trash.
This is not our core mission but a vital component to carrying out our missions. We will hire unemployed veterans to staff our boats.
