Last week the Waterkeeper Alliance Board of Directors approved Charleston Waterkeeper as the newest member of the Waterkeeper Family. Two other programs, the Choptank Riverkeeper in Maryland and the Loreto Baykeeper in Baja California Sur, Mexico were also approved. These new members bring the Waterkeeper Alliance total to 182 programs around the world.
We at Charleston Waterkeeper want to congratulate the other programs as we know first hand the hard work that has gone into the establishment of their organizations. The conversations I’ve had with individuals throughout the community have provided me with the advice, guidance, insight, and support needed to get this far. I want to thank everyone for all of their help over the past few months in making this program a reality…now, the fun (and work) really starts!
It’s OFFICIAL, there is a Charleston Waterkeeper!
