Dean is running the 2012 Antarctica Marathon to promote fitness and raise money for penguin conservation!

The Cause

Riverbanks Zoo

Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens is consistently rated as one of the finest zoos in America. I am supporting their excellent and important mission to fund direct, on-the-ground conservation efforts (in this case hands-on penguin conservation work done by Oceanites) through The Riverbanks Conservation Support Fund.

The Riverbanks Society is a 501(c)(3) charity.


Oceanites is a nonprofit science and education foundation dedicated to the understanding and conservation of the world’s oceans, islands, wildlife (specifically penguins) and the important and breathtaking land of Antarctica. Oceanites promotes appreciation for the sensitive connections people have to our watery globe.┬áIt’s ongoing major research project is the unparalleled Antarctic Site Inventory.

Oceanites is a 501(c)(3) charity.

Over 90% of donated funds go directly to real-world, on-the-ground conservation. That’s just flat-out excellent.
