Blue Frontier Campaign’s Seaweed Rebels and Ocean Explorers Roz Savage and Margo Pellegrino are two women effectively raising awareness on the threats the ocean faces and the need for conservation measures.
Extreme Distance Shoreline Paddler
Since 2007 she has paddled the coasts of the US in partnership with various environmental nonprofits to highlight the problems challenging our ocean, a resource on which the world depends for oxygen, food, weather, and well-being. Our ocean resources are an important economic driver for our national, and in fact global, economy. Margo is currently a project of the Blue Frontier Campaign.
Roz is the first woman to have rowed solo across three oceans – the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian. In 2010, Roz Savage finished the 3rd leg of her Pacific Ocean row (from Tarawa to Australia). She began her journey from San Francisco to Hawaii in 2008, continued from Hawaii to Tarawa in 2009, and has moved a number of constituents around the globe towards more awareness and better individual practices for ocean conservation.
