OCEAN HERO AWARD WINNERS: Jean Beasely and the McCracken Siblings!

The votes have been counted, and we're excited to announce Jean, Rory, and Maeve as our 2013 Ocean Hero Award winners. Jean runs a sea turtle hospital in North Carolina, carrying on the legacy of her late daughter Karen. Her work has saved the lives of hundreds of turtles, and she's not slowing down—the hospital is currently in the midst of an expansion!

Our junior winners, Rory and Maeve, are siblings who created an organization to help the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Together they have written and illustrated a children's book, which they distribute to elementary schools to teach children about the Gulf. Together, these people are perfect examples of how anyone with a passion for the oceans can become ocean heroes and make a big impact.
