FORCE BLUE, the only non-profit organization in the world that retrains and redeploys former Special Operations veterans and military-trained combat divers to assist in marine and coral reef conservation efforts, launched its latest mission, 100 Yards of Hope, February 2, 2020 at Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
By uniting the community of Special Operations veterans with the world of marine science and conservation, FORCE BLUE has created a transpartisan model of caring, cooperation and positive change with the power to restore lives and restore the planet.
Pepsi Stronger Together – Brand Pepsi’s series of tailored grassroots initiatives to empower communities and ecosystems around the country – is teaming up with Force Blue and the Floridac Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) for Force Blue x Pepsi Stronger Together Coastal Conservation Ops, a summer-long series of four marine conservation initiatives in coastal communities around Florida.
The world premiere of 100 Yards of Hope, a documentary about the unique Super Bowl restoration of a football field-sized coral reef, will debut during NFL Draft week in Cleveland, the host city of this year’s Draft.
Acceptance into the AAUS is a tremendous feather-in-the-cap for FORCE BLUE in that it enables the nonprofit to further its mission to “preserve and restore” by partnering with universities, aquariums and NGO’s around the world.
