Sailors for the Sea promotes ocean conservation with “Onboard Reporter” program
Thanks to a special partnership between our two organizations that began last spring, Sailors for the Sea, a leading ocean conservation program, is getting its message out with the help of SEA Semester students. Each term, one SEA Semester student is designated as Sailors for Sea's "Onboard Reporter," and receives a $1,500 award. This fall, the Onboard Reporter is William Harnisch, a University of Rhode Island student and member of class S-270, Ocean Exploration. William will soon report aboard the SSV Robert C. Seamans in New Zealand, where, in addition to his SEA Semester studies and duties, his job will be to raise awareness about the ocean through blogging, storytelling, social media posts, photography and video. Here's William's first report. We encourage you to follow the stories filed by Sailors for the Sea's Onboard Reporter!
