Kudos to Marilyn!
Marilyn was honored at the 2010 NC Sea Turtle Permit Holder's meeting as the volunteer who logged the most number of volunteer hours in North Carolina. As this year's Education Committee chair, Marilyn has been spreading the good word about sea turtle conservation to thousands. At schools, festivals, marathons and beyond, Marilyn and her team has been seen everywhere this year. She has even traveled as far as Raleigh in these efforts.
We are very pleased to note thatChristian Legner, the aquarist who also serves as the coordinator of the N.E.S.T. rehab efforts was recently presented with the N.C. Aquarium on Roanoke Island’s Award of Excellence. Her tireless efforts throughout the “cold stranding event of 09-10” are very much appreciated.
