Dear *|MERGE6|*,

As a supporter of Mote’s Education Division, you already understand our impact on young minds. Mote’s unique programs make learning fun and offer children hands-on experience that gets them excited about science and about our marine world. These programs are accessible to all age groups and knowledge levels — in fact, some even discover a newfound love of science and the ocean after their experiences at Mote.

We believe that education and conservation go hand in hand. By demonstrating the complex ecosystem of our ocean and how it intertwines so intimately with our lives, our educators help our community take the first steps to protecting and nurturing our most precious resources.

Our education initiatives are just one example of the many ways that Mote makes a difference in the world. I am pleased to share with you our 2013 Annual Report, available here, which provides a more comprehensive view of our work at Mote. Help us to sustain our exceptional research, education and conservation initiatives that allow to us understand, protect and save some of the most treasured resources and species in our planet by investing in our Annual Fund,Waves of Support. A gift of *|MERGE8|* will help us continue to make the world a better place. To donate please visit us here or call 941-388-4441 ext. 415 for assistance.

Thank you for your ongoing and critically important support of Mote. Together we are advancing important objectives and achieving great results.
