Herbert M. Bedolfe, III

Board of Directors
Marisla Foundation

Bedolfe, the executive director of the Marisla Foundation, was one of Oceana's founders and led the organization from 2002 until 2008. Under his leadership, Oceana's efforts led to many victories for the oceans including the protection of over 640 million acres of ocean habitat from destructive bottom trawling, the commitment by the world's second largest cruise line to stop dumping inadequately treated sewage and wastewater into the ocean and a decision by the European Union to shut down illegal driftnetters and thereby potentially save up to 25,000 juvenile bluefin tuna from being caught.
