As you can read in the November edition of the SEVENSEAS marine conservation and travel magazine, Giacomo Abrusci has been awarded by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center as Blue Ambassador of the Year. SEVENSEAS Media is a Partner of LT&C, and congratulate Giacomo for this well-earned award. LT&C has recommended several times to use the free subscription of the SEVENSEAS magazine to find many good stories where tourism is linked to marine conservation. Several LT&C-Examples have been published there as well. In the following, we are re-publishing the article of the magazine about the award:
Nearly everyone in the ocean conservation community is familiar with SEVENSEAS Media. What most people do not know is that the entire organization was founded by, and is run by one volunteer individual, Giacomo Abrusci. For nearly 5 years he has tirelessly dedicated his time to elevating our community by providing a grassroots outlet for individuals to network, tell stories, share professional development and career opportunities, and even take part in networking events and beach cleanups. With 30k monthly visitors to his site and subscribers in 174 countries, Giacomo is single-handedly strengthening the capacity of the ocean conservation community by building bridges with his free resource.
Through SEVENSEAS Media, Giacomo provides tens of thousands with news and career resources, he gives an outlet for hundreds of organizations to share their good work and fundraise, and he offers virtual and in-person opportunities for direct action.
Giacomo does all this, as a volunteer, for free. Honoring him with the Blue Ambassador of the Year Award not only acknowledges his efforts but brings attention to SEVENSEAS Media where others within our community can get involved, support, or benefit from the resource.
