April 20, 2009

PALM DESERT, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Terrell Owens, wide receiver of the Buffalo Bills has joined The Rolling Stones, Steve Miller Band, The Jonas Brothers, and other luminaries in a generous assist to the Save The Earth Foundation. Mr. Owens will be signing three Save The Earth T-shirts set to be auctioned on the Save The Earth web site during their annual on line Earth Day celebration.

Save The Earth Foundation functions as a non-profit public benefit corporation dedicated to the expansion of environmental awareness in our society. As an organization committed to raising public environmental consciousness by supporting scientific research and educational programs, we are optimistic that our work will have a very positive impact on the efforts currently under way to solve our earth’s problems.

The Foundation’s research endeavors center on the selection and funding of environmentally beneficial programs within our institutions of higher education. In order to achieve our objectives we are committed to the continued support of vital research programs, like our latest with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), on the Davidson Seamount. The Davidson has recently been added to the boundaries of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. There will now be protection for ancient, spectacular corals as well as newly discovered rare species (NOAA has identified 13 species new to science so far). There are more than 30,000 seamounts in the global oceans, a fraction of one percent have been explored, and some seamounts have already been obliterated of coral communities by destructive harvesting. As the only seamount in the National Marine Sanctuary program, Davidson will serve as a research and education focus on this unique habitat type. Only through exciting research that can be interpreted to the public can we effectively influence public policy and human behavior.

With the support of people from all walks of life we are confident that the Foundation’s efforts will help to reverse the environmental deterioration of our planet. For more information on the Foundation and our Earth Day on line auction please visit www.savetheearth.org.
