Racing For Marine Conservation

From the environmental activist website, Earthrace, the website explains the nonprofit's mission:
 
Earthrace Conservation Organisation aims to identify marine conservation issues, and intervene where and when necessary to protect and defend threatened marine ecosystems world-wide.

Through direct action and education, and by involving local communities, governments and businesses, it will encourage respect and guardianship of our oceans and all animals that depend on them.

Earthrace Conservation will galvanize a global movement to speak out for the preservation of marine life everywhere.

The name comes from a the boat, Earthrace-- a project that demonstrated that renewable fuels were viable.  Earthrace, received world-wide attention  by breaking the global circumnavigation speed record using only bio diesel from sustainable sources. The journey took 60 days 23 hours 49 minutes, breaking the previous record by almost two weeks
