In 2010, Sophie affiliated herself with Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization of on-the-water advocates who patrol and protect over 100,000 miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.
The Waterkeeper Alliance are the first line of defense during the BP Gulf oil disaster recovery. The Gulfwaterkeepers on scene are FL: Apalachicola Riverkeeper and Emerald Coastkeeper. AL: Mobile Baykeeper, LA: Louisiana Bayoukeeper and Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper. Also working to clean up the ocean waters and beaches are volunteers, marine biologists, environmental advocates, and members of each of the coastal communities who have been affected.
Sophie launched a new eco-message single, “The Land, the Sea and the Sky” for sale at I-Tunes with all proceeds going to the Waterkeeper Alliance.
The Save Our Gulf website has been established by Waterkeeper Alliance to coordinate the efforts of Gulf Waterkeepers who are fighting to proctect the Gulf Coast. Please visit the website to learn how you can help.
Imagine the long term effects of this disaster, just because we don’t see the devastation, like another disaster we see directly and react to immediately with an outpouring of money and love, doesn’t mean it isn’t as bad. As Einstein said, we need to expand our circle of compassion. — Sophie
