Save the Whales has assisted the municipalities on the Monterey Peninsula in reducing the pollutants that end up in Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean when it rains. STW assists us by performing many of the tasks that we undertake to improve storm water quality , all with a careful eye on saving costs and working efficiently. STW has saved us tens of thousands of dollars over the past few years by eliminating unnecessary expenses and focusing on the tasks that will make the largest impact on our environment. STW is doing the "boots on the ground" work that results in real improvements to water quality, both projects in our communities and through educating people on how our actions affect the world we live in - both positively and negatively. Most of my day is spent pushing a lot of paper and completing seemingly meaningless tasks that too often seem unrelated to making a positive difference in the world. STW is making a real difference right now - not through philosophical arguments but through their investment of hard work in our communities. We have all benefitted from their efforts - and whether we realize it or not, they are still doing the work!
