OSV BOLD Tweets Its Way Up the New England Coast

2009 July 31

Hi there! Each day thousands of people are working at EPA to help clean up our environment. I’m one of the lucky few that gets to see how this work is done out on the ocean! My name is Jeanethe Falvey, I’m 24 years old and have worked for EPA for just over two years since I graduated from Bates College in 2007. This week, from July 30 – August 6, I will be onboard the OSV BOLD, EPA’s only ocean research ship. Scientists will be studying the health of New England’s coastline from Boston Harbor to Penobscot Bay in Maine, and I’m here to help show you what life is like onboard the ship. Learn more at and follow me on Twitter @epalive!

Jeanethe Falvey works in EPA’s Boston office.

    Well i hope you keep us informed how the coast and marine life are fairing. Including the health of the fish and their food chain

    We already know the fish are dangerously depleted from overfishing, and we already know there is increasing amounts of garbage washing up on shores around the World. Is the New England Coast somehow free from such problems (?)
