#Check­InForGood to Help At­lantis Blue Project Foun­da­tion - Ba­hamas, Dec. 6-8, 2017

The Star (St. Lucia) - Business Week - - CORPORATE HANDS -

The Ba­hamas is home to one of the largest co­ral reefs in the world. Its sus­tain­abil­ity is vi­tal to the marine ecosys­tem as reefs pro­vide food and shel­ter for a vast ar­ray of marine life in ad­di­tion to pro­tect­ing shore­lines and pre­serv­ing beaches.

Led by marine ecol­o­gist Dr. Craig Dahlgren of the At­lantis Blue Project Foun­da­tion, an or­gan­i­sa­tion de­vel­op­ing in­no­va­tive ways to pro­tect Ba­hamian wa­ters and wildlife, vol­un­teers on this trip will par­tic­i­pate in an on­go­ing co­ral nurs­ery project on Par­adise Is­land and as­sist with har­vest­ing and out­plant­ing co­ral, in ad­di­tion to ac­tiv­i­ties at the dol­phin sanc­tu­ary.

The first 2,000 en­trants who #Check­InForGood will re­ceive do­na­tion codes to do­nate to a char­ity of their choice at glob­al­giv­ing.org/jetblue. En­trants who are se­lected as win­ners from the “standby” list for one of the vol­un­teer trips will be no­ti­fied of their el­i­gi­bil­ity on a rolling ba­sis through Novem­ber 20, 2017.
