Blue Frontier Campaign announced today that it had received the prestigious 2005 Coastal Living Award for Leadership. Each year Coastal Living Magazine honors a select group of people and organizations who have contributed to protection of the shore. The awards recognize achievements in the areas of Sea and Shore Preservation, Education, Community Development, Tourism, Design and Leadership.
This year Blue Frontier founder and president David Helvarg was given the leadership award for his work helping to mobilize an emerging blue movement that works for the protection, exploration and restoration of America’s living seas. A full list of award recipients can be found in the Jan/Feb issue of Coastal Living Magazine now on sale.
A national magazine that celebrates life along the coast, Coastal Living has, since its launch in 1997, grown to serve a total audience of more than 3 million readers.
The Blue Frontier Campaign, founded in 2003, works to strengthen America’s ocean constituency through building unity, providing educational and organizing tools, and enhancing awareness of common sense solutions that can help protect and restore our endangered public seas.
In addition, on January 3 Gristmagazine.org ran an Interactivista interview story on Helvarg and Blue Frontier. Grist is the leading environmental web-magazine with a sense of humor, then again it may be one of the only environmental entities with a sense of humor.
