Nautica showed its charitable side by donating $100,000 to Oceana’s deepwater oil exploration expedition in the Gulf of Mexico. The two-month research project started earlier this month and is designed to document habitats vulnerable to the results of future oil spills.
The apparel company was joined by actors Ted Danson and Morgan Freeman at an event in Gulfport, Miss, to announce its support.
“After the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, it was important that Nautica do more to help,” said Nina Flood, vice president of marketing for Nautica. “Nautica’s donation will help to ensure that Oceana can carry out its important research to assess the true impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.”
