Baykeeper Pete expands his territory
Pete Nichols, the force behind Humboldt Baykeeper, is leaving his post to take an even more powerful position in the enviro badass world. The news has dioxin apologists and pollution scoundrels pissing themselves.
The announcement from Nichols:
It is very bittersweet to announce that, after 7 years, I will be leaving Humboldt Baykeeper to take a position with the Waterkeeper Alliance. As you can imagine, this was a very difficult decision for me. Humboldt Baykeeper’s staff, board, members, and supporters have been like family to me for the past seven years and I think we, together, did some amazing work protecting our Bay, watersheds, and coast.
While I will miss the work at Humboldt Baykeeper, I will still be involved in my new role as the Western Regional Director of the Waterkeeper Alliance. In this position I will be working to promote the work of all the Waterkeepers in the west, coordinating regional campaigns, and bringing new Waterkeeper programs to the movement. I am extremely excited for this new challenge and dedicated to working towards ensuring swimmable, drinkable, and fishable waters for all— locally, regionally, and globally.
I will still be in the area, and look forward to working with many of you in my new position at Waterkeeper. I will be leaving Baykeeper in late July or early August and will be working to ensure a smooth transition with Baykeeper’s extremely capable staff.
Thank you SO much for providing me with the opportunity to be YOUR Baykeeper for the past seven years and you can rest assured that the fantastic staff of Humboldt Baykeeper will continue to work tirelessly to fight for the bay and coast in this new chapter for the organization.
All the best, I hope to see many of you soon–
