Be A North Pacific Voyage Sponsor

Posted by: Algalita Admin

Here are two additional ways to participate in the AMRF unique Summer 2011 North Pacific Gyre scientific expedition.

Sponsor a crew member. This will give you the opportunity to support people who can contribute to the expedition: scientists, journalists, educators, policy makers, employees of private sector firms, and particularly young, future leaders. Crew members will recognize their sponsors by writing blogs and generating additional photos/videos at sea, including company branding for sponsor’s websites.

Sponsor a Trawl. Supporting funding for one 24-hour sample collection trawl ensures each crew members’ participation, integral to the research to be conducted on this voyage. Trawl Sponsors will be mentioned in a dedicated blog posted during the expedition highlighting their support, as well as acknowledgement of their company logo in the post.
