    WHY:       This event is organized to promote an upcoming fundraiser, For
               The Oceans Oct. 7, 2009 at the Red & White Club in Calgary to
               support the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

               For The Oceans, held in land-locked Calgary, is the world's
               largest corporate fundraiser in support of this group.
               Calgarians have the highest per capita ownership of boat
               licenses and scuba certifications in Canada, and therefore
               care deeply about the plight of sharks and whales.

               The Sea Shepherd is well known for their work with the Costa
               Rican government in protecting the nation's shark sanctuaries,
               as filmed in the award-winning documentary Sharkwater. The Sea
               Shepherd is also coming off their second season of Whale Wars,
               the most highly rated program ever produced for Animal Planet
               and the channel's first show with controversial subject
               matter.
