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.
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.
After successfully completing our “DIVE 55” marine debris removal operation to kick off NFL Green Week in Tampa, FORCE BLUE divers traveled back to Miami where the team out-planted 55 pieces of Elkhorn coral on to our “100 Yards of Hope” reef restoration site in celebration of Super Bowl LV.
At the start of NFL Green Week in Tampa last week, FORCE BLUE partnered with Pepsi Stronger Together to host a day-long marine debris removal operation and beach clean-up on Anna Maria Island, just south of the city at the mouth of Tampa Bay.
