The WAVE Foundation protects aquatic animals and supporting water conservation efforts worldwide.

The WAVE Foundation is an independent non-profit organization working in partnership with the Newport Aquarium. The mission of WAVE (Welfare of Aquatic Animals through Advocacy Volunteerism and Education) is to excite, engage and educate our community about the wonders of aquatic life and the importance of conservation.   

The foundation does this through a series of local educational outreach efforts and by supporting conservation initiatives in our region, nationally and internationally.   

Joining "Cincinnati Edition" to discuss the Wave Foundation is Executive Director Scott Wingate.   

The WAVE Foundation has been a supporter of the Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) annual Riversweep program since 2000. The next Riversweep takes place this Saturday, June 16.

Tune into "Cincinnati Edition" June 12 starting at 1 p.m. to hear this segment.
