Vote for Lynda Doughty of Maine for CNN’s Hero of the Year
Let’s show the world how it’s done in New England
I’ve written before about Lynda Doughty of Maine and her dedication to saving marine animals. The nonprofit Marine Mammals of Maine is busy saving animals that have been injured along the Maine coast. Doughty spoke to CNN when the pandemic began, “We are the only organization authorized to respond to marine mammal strandings within 2,500 miles of the coast.” His work is important to the struggling Maine marine mammals.
Growing up by the sea
Doughty grew up on the coast of Maine and from an early age fell in love with wildlife. As a child, she spent many nights dreaming about what seals were doing at night and wanting to know more. She took her lifelong interest in a career by becoming a marine biologist when she grew up. Then she used her skills and knowledge to help Maine wildlife. She doesn’t just react to seals. His non-profit organization also responds to a 24-hour hotline on sea turtles, whales and dolphins.
Recognition she deserves
If you want to boost her profile and help Maine’s marine mammals, you can do so by voting for her on the CNN site. Voting is live now, and on December 12, CNN will announce its Hero of the Year with its special annual tribute to the stars. Lynda Doughty is already in the top 10, so go to the website and give her a vote. I bet every sea turtle and seal in Maine would vote if they didn’t just have fins. It’s nice to see his hard work and dedication to helping Maine.
