Walker Emulsions Supports Coastal Conservation of South Carolina

fishThe Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) is a non-profit organization with 17 coastal state chapters spanning the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic seaboard, and the Pacific Northwest. The purpose of CCA is to advise and educate the public on conservation of marine resources and its objective is to conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of those resources.

In recent years, a group of like-minded individuals including, Joe Cerracchio, Technical Sales Representative, for Walker Emulsions, began a local CCA chapter (CCA Bluffton) in South Carolina – home to Walker Emulsions’ newest facility location.

Walker Emulsions, a division of Walker Industries, has always had a commitment to the environment and to the communities in which they operate. Living by the philosophy of meeting today’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations, sponsoring CCA’s newest South Carolina chapter was an easy decision for Walker Emulsions.

Since its inception, CCA Bluffton has been able to be part of hundreds of local, state, and national projects that initiate scientific studies; fund marine-science scholarships; build artificial reefs; create finfish hatcheries; initiate hydrologic and contaminant studies; monitor freshwater inflows; support local marine law enforcement; and more.

“We are pleased to be able to support an organization like CCA Bluffton that is able to do so much for the environment. Their efforts truly align with our Walker values”, said Archie Reynolds, Executive Vice President for Walker Emulsions.
