This Valentine’s Day, we want show Congress and the Administration that there is lots of love for estuaries and that cuts break our heart. In order to demonstrate support for your reserve, NERRA is joining forces to celebrate Valentine’s Day through a joint, 3-day “I Heart Estuaries” campaign February 12th through 14th :
Participating in the “I Heart Estuaries” campaign is simple! We are asking all those who “heart” their estuary to send three emails and/or faxes to their congressional representatives stating why they love their estuary and asking them to maintain federal funding for the NERRS. In addition to your personal efforts, the national estuary groups will also send more formal detailed Valentine letters to Congressional Appropriators and the Administration.
For more information on the program and details on how you can help, including email templates and logos you can use, check out the NERRA Resources and Documents Page.
You can also use Twitter to help spread the message of the I ♥ Estuaries campaign! Simply locate Twitter targets and sample tweets using our Twitter Valentines Day of Action resource page and get tweeting! Be sure to use the Hashtag #iheartestuaries.
