Heirs To Our Oceans Youth Leaders to Testify at the Pacific Fisheries Management Council

Portland, Oregon, April 7-8, 2018

 

April 6, 2018 – This coming weekend, on Saturday April 7thand Sunday April 8th, two Heirs of Heirs To Our Oceanswill be testifying before the Pacific Fisheries Management Council (PFMC) regarding the importance of protecting our deep-sea habitat and anchovy populations. 

Heirs To Our Oceans is a growing group of concerned middle school kids focused on ocean conservation. They are passionate about showing the world how human impacts on our oceans affect the health of this and future generations. The Heirs are intent upon creating an upwelling of youth worldwide who are empowered to investigate, document and advocate about the ocean crisis acting as citizen scientists, sharing their findings with the world, and taking charge of solving world problems for their generation. 

The Heirs study the ocean crisis through customized learning, developing their problem solving and critical thinking skills. Engaged in self-driven independent learning, the Heirs are inspired by their own passions and concerns, and interdisciplinary studies where all major subject matters are tied to the theme of ocean conservation for future generations. 

The Heirs make a strong case for their generation, and will be sending a message of “please protect our oceans as business as usual isn’t working any longer for the next generation”.  

Heir Arjun Subramanian, 14 years old, will testify before the PFMC regarding collapse of anchovy fisheries on Saturday, April 7, sometime in the morning, “Agenda Item C.4 Process for Review of Reference Points for Monitored Stocks”

Heir Charley Peebler, 14 years old, will testify before the PFMC regarding protecting deep sea habitat for future generations on Sunday, April 8, sometime in the afternoon, “Agenda Item F.3 Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) and Rockfish Conservation Area (RCA)”
