On September 17th, Sea Shepherd Dallas attended Ecofest in Arlington, Texas. The event, held in downtown Arlington, showcased green and eco-friendly businesses and organizations, as well as featured eco-friendly DIY home remodeling tips. Thousands of people showed up to enjoy the beautiful day, and take part in this wonderful event. The table was buzzing with hundreds of people that made donations, bought merchandise, and signed up for the Sea Shepherd News Letter.
It was a pleasure to talk with supporters, as well as to educate those who were unaware of Sea Shepherd. On Shore Volunteers Rebecca Martian, Sonja Piotter, Doris Hargrove, Lacy Reed, Joseph Perkup, and myself felt that we managed to educate many people on SSCS and the importance of protecting our oceans and its inhabitants.
