ACS 50-Mile Dolphin Dash Run
ACS Executive Director Cheryl McCormick is running 50 miles (in a single day!) to raise awareness of critical conservation threats facing cetaceans worldwide, and to enable ACS to attend the 2012 meeting of the International Whaling Commission in Panama City, Panama. There, Cheryl will represent ACS and millions of citizens worldwide who care about whales, to advocate for whale conservation measures and block measures that compromise the safety and welfare of whales. On Thursday, June 28th at 5:30 a.m., Cheryl will begin her run around the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. She departs the very next morning for Panama City. Her support crew will provide video and updates during the run, so you can follow her progress! Watch for updates on the ACS website at www.acsonline.org.
You can support Cheryl’s efforts by making a tax-deductible donation - Thank you!

American Cetacean Society
Whales, dolphins, and porpoises (collectively known as "cetaceans‟) enchant us with their grace, intelligence, and beauty, and yet their relationship with humans has often been a story of conflict destruction. The American Cetacean Society believes that the solution to shaping this relationship in the future for the protection of ceatceans and their habitats begins with education.
ACS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in San Pedro, California, with eight chapters – Los Angeles, Monterey Bay, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco (CA), Puget Sound (WA), Oregon (Newport), and a national Student Coalition based out of Indiana University Bloomington.
With members residing throughout the U.S. and in more than a dozen countries, ACS is concerned with the welfare, protection, and safety of whales, dolphins, porpoises, and the ocean and riverine habitats in which they live. We accomplish our goals of protecting cetaceans through developing public education initiatives, strategic policy programs, funding scientific research, and conservation advocacy.
