About Wells Fargo II
The Story Behind the Name: Wells Fargo II became part of the SRC family at the start of 2011, with a contribution to support our ongoing research and outreach efforts. Wells Fargo is a leader in corporate and environmental responsibility, providing the community with $6 billion in green loans, $3.4 million in donations to environmental non-profits like SRC, and 20% emissions reductions (of 2008 levels) by 2018. Their mission for Environmental Affairs is:
We strive to bring a greater connection between banking and the environment by serving as environmental leaders in all that we do. This means operating more efficiently, engaging our team members to make a difference through everyday actions, investing in sustainable projects and the development of our communities, supporting long-term customer relationships, and providing our customers with innovative products and services.
We thanks Wells Fargo for their contribution and look forward to a long, prosperous future together in marine conservation.
Satellite Tagging: “Wells Fargo” was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag technology providing us with one of the first opportunities to follow the long term movements of these threatened species. Please keep checking back frequently to follow Wells Fargo’s movements, which will be updated every few days as his satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.
