The Farallon Institute for Advanced Ecosystem Research is pleased to announce its selection as an award recipient in the Google Impact Challenge: Bay Area, a program that is providing an aggregate $5 million to 25 selected local non-profits that have presented the most innovative ideas for building an even better Bay Area. Selected from nearly 800 organizations, the Farallon Institute will receive both a grant and support from Google volunteers to conduct the North Coast Cooperative project focused on brining new technologies to traditional oceanographic sampling off northern California.
Online voting for additional winners of the Google Impact Challenge: Bay Area will be open until October 20. While Farallon Institute has already been awarded a grant and is not included in the online voting contest, please check out these other Bay Area non-profits that are doing amazing work, making a difference in their communities, and cast a vote for your favorite.
