Every year Oracle recognizes several employees whose sustainability efforts help reduce our environmental footprint, as well as improve the environment in the communities where they live and work. Last year's Oracle Employee Sustainability Champions represented many countries around the world and they were involved in a wide range of sustainability-related interests.
One of last year's champions was Bernard Schober, a shark conservationist, who was recently spotlighted in a video. Bernard is a 23-year Oracle veteran and is a Duty Manager for the Food and Beverage Hospitality Support Desk. He is also a shark conservationist who lives in the middle of the Arizona desert. Bernard has been working with various shark conservation groups, most notably Fins Attached in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to raise funds and do outreach on shark conservation. He has published two books-Chumming the Waters and Cap'n Klute's Ocean Almanac-the proceeds of which he donates to Fins Attached.
