PTMSC Volunteer Trades Oars For Bike Pedals To Motivate Environmental Action

from Row For Climate blog

At age 10, Eliza Dawson volunteered at PTMSC on the Orca Project, preparing the bones of Hope the orca for display.

This summer, Eliza now 22, participated in the Great Pacific Race with Team Ripple Effect, an international team of young women to row across the Pacific from California to Hawaii to motivate environmental political action. While the team had to end the row due to a medical emergency, Eliza has chosen to continue by cycling "400 miles through the remote Alaskan and Canadian wilderness, getting an up-close view of rapidly receding glaciers, as well as bountiful wildlife and scenery".
