Noah Bukaty…Paying it Forward!

“When I won $10.00 in the “practice” drawing on October 24, everyone wanted to know what I did with it. I gave it to a foundation called Oceana. They are the largest non-profit international ocean conservation group. They work to prevent the collapse of fish populations, marine mammals, and other sea life caused by overfishing and pollution. I gave all the money to them because I love the ocean and I love everything in it. Sadly, millions of fish and marine life are being killed every year. For example sharks, which are my favorite sea creature, are being killed by fishing nets, overfishing and worst of all, shark finning. Shark finning is where they catch a shark, cut off its fins, and throw the body back into the ocean alive just so someone can make a disgusting soup. I want to be a marine biologist when I grow up, and I’d like an ocean to be there filled with marine life. Even though some people may think that $10.00 won’t do anything, I know that every dollar counts.”
