BTT Even though we live in Colorado and spend as much time in our majestic mountains as possible all of us at Lighthouse Conferencing LOVE our oceans and the ecosystems within.  So we are very happy to announce that, as part of our ongoing commitment to 1% For the Planet — you can read about that commitment HERE — we have made another donation.  This time to the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust: www.tarbone.org.  tarpon

In addition to being passionate about collaboration, many of us at Lighthouse are also avid fisherman.  So it would make sense that one of our favorite winter pastimes is to travel to the warmer corners of the globe in order to connect with elusive bonefish and tarpon that roam the mystical saltwater flats.  Like most sportsmen, we quickly fell in love with the fish we were seeking and now feel responsible to protect them, their habitat, and their legacy. We also know that by helping out the bonefish and the tarpon we are helping to preserve the entire ocean.  We’re not just fisherman. We surf, swim, paddle, sail, kite, and dive in the great oceans of our world.  We feed of their every present energy and welcome the recharge of our souls whenever we have an opportunity.  We realize that while the oceans are massive they are still a finite resource and we are committed to doing anything we can to preserve their health and beauty.flats1

We feel that there is no better steward of our oceans, tidal flats, and wild salty places than the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust and are proud to be able to contribute to their work.  If you’re interested in bonefishing or tarpon fishing or just love our ocean and flats please consider joining. It’s a great and very worthwhile organization.

We look forward to announcing our next round of donations in 2013.  As always, Lighthouse Conferencing is the ONLY audio conferencing, web conferencing, video conferencing, and webcasting provider who has made a public AND monetary commitment to donate 1% of all revenue to environmental causes through their relationship with 1% for the Planet.  Just another reason Lighthouse Conferencing is a different kind of conferencing company.
