Do you know an ocean hero? Nominate them with Oceana

Oceana, the international organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the worlds oceans, has once again started taking nominees for their annual 'Ocean Hero' contest.

If you know someone who is making a contribution to ocean or sea life conservation, or if you are doing it yourself, go here to nominate before the April 27 and they (or you!) will have a chance to win some pretty cool prizes.

Whether you raise money for saving turtles, use your spare time to clean trash from beaches, or write papers on ecology and conservation, you'll be in with a chance.

Follow this link to check out previous winners, and the fantastic work they have done.
