Congratulations to our 2016 winner Naomi Tachera!
Naomi's behavior change for a sustainable world proposal is for people to discontinue the use of sunscreens made with oxybenzone, which is damaging our reefs, and to make a switch to an alternative sunscreen that keeps our oceans clean and our animals safe.
Thank you to all those who submitted proposals!
