           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.

           For the Oceans sponsors are DIRTT Environmental Solutions,
           CresaPartners and Element Integrated Workplace Solutions.
           Representatives from each will be in attendance.
