Congrats to Jericho Elementary School on Winning The Adoption Challenge!

We’re excited to announce the winners of our Adoption Challenge – Jericho Elementary School! These students hosted the Cupcake Wars, where one of our volunteers was lucky enough to be invited as a judge and taste all of these delicious goodies. Through their efforts, they raised $3,304 to adopt animals!

We had 21 schools in total participate this year, raising a total of $5,255. We thank everyone for their efforts in helping us to raise the funds necessary to continue preserving and protecting our marine environment and it’s inhabitants.

A private release will be held for Jericho Elementary School this week. The animal they have chosen is Freedom, a juvenile gray seal rescued from Lido Beach on March 30, 2016.
