WFXT Boston 25 Announces Robert Cuddi as Boston's 2017 Cox Conserves Hero
Friday, October 13, 2017

$20,000 being donated to environmental nonprofits

BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- WFXT Boston 25, in partnership with The Trust for Public Land today named Robert Cuddi as Boston's 2017 Cox Conserves Hero. New England Aquarium, Cuddi's nonprofit beneficiary, will receive $10,000. Cuddi was among the three finalists who were nominated by the public then chosen by local judging panels to compete in an online vote.

Cuddi joined the New England Aquarium's field-based volunteer program - the live blue(TM) Service Corps - in 2015 and has since been among the organization's most active stewardship volunteers. Cuddi has dedicated hundreds of hours toward conservation efforts in and around Boston. He's educated visitors at the Aquarium, assisted cold-stunned sea turtles at the Aquarium's Rescue and Rehab center, led volunteer cleanups at Revere Beach, worked with the Boston Water and Sewer Commission to label storm drains to protect them from dumping and much more. Cuddi's projects improve the local environment and build connections between people and their natural surroundings.

The two runners-up will each receive $5,000 for their nonprofits of choice. Neil Santos selected Pawtuckaway Lake Improvement Association (PLIA) as his nonprofit of choice; Caleb Blankenship chose Friends of the Blue Hills.

Cox Conserves Heroes was created through a partnership between The Trust for Public Land and Cox Enterprises, the parent company of WFXT Boston 25, to honor local conservation volunteers.

The national Cox Conserves Heroes program has donated nearly $800,000 to environmental nonprofits, and nearly 200 volunteers have been honored. Cox Conserves Heroes also takes place in Arizona, California, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Virginia and Washington and is part of the company's national Cox Conserves sustainability program that is celebrating its 10(th) anniversary.
