#13: A Whale-Sized Donation

Since 1998, Irving Oil has shown support for the recovery of the North Atlantic right whale by partnering with the New England Aquarium Right Whale Research Program and providing funding necessary to run our field research projects. In addition to their 2014 funding, this year Irving Oil ran a campaign on Facebook for our program. Facebook users could show support for right whales while also entering a contest for an Irving fuel card, and with each entry Irving Oil donated $5 to our research. We are extremely pleased that this campaign was so successful- $20,000 (that's 4,000 clicks!) was raised!!!

Thank you, Irving Oil, for your additional donation! And a special thanks to all of the people who supported this campaign and participated to help us reach our $20,000 goal! Clearly, we couldn't have done it without all of you!
