The Savannah River is home to the Atlantic and Shortnose Sturgeon, but they are in danger of disappearing. Now, you can support efforts to restore habitat, return these fish to their breeding grounds, and help them thrive again by participating in our Save the Sturgeon program!
We've all seen various charities' paper cutouts at grocery store counters - these fish are the same idea - you can buy a Sturgeon cutout for $1, $5, or $10 at local restaurants, breweries and other shops.
To promote Sturgeon Awareness, Savannah Riverkeeper will partner with businesses in Savannah and Augusta. One business in each market will sell the paper fish for ONE MONTH, supporting Savannah Riverkeeper’s efforts to protect and restore endangered sturgeon populations. We're kicking it off in February with our friends at Savannah River Brewing Co.!
ARE YOU A BUSINESS INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING? HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
If you want to take part, we will provide you with everything needed. An SRK representative will come to a minimum of 2 shift meetings to explain how it works and hype selling of the fish to your staff. There are prize levels from SRK for the best sellers! Your business may offer your own incentives, too. We'll provide an easy competition poster to keep track, as well as button pins, posters, table toppers, and optional shirts for promoting the paper fish sales. At the end of the month, we'll return to distribute prizes and collect the funds. We will promote your partnership through social media and there are other kickbacks for staff who sell the most! For a full rundown, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get an info packet or schedule a meeting.
