Creating a Family Legacy for the Ocean



Linda Sword Johnson and Virginia Sword Linda Sword Johnson and Virginia Sword

Martin and Virginia Sword were raised in the Santa Clara Valley and frequently visited the Central Coast with their young daughters, Linda and Sabrina. Virginia was an early advocate of ocean conservation and imparted the importance of environmental protection to her two girls.

Through her inspiration, both Linda and Sabrina developed a deep concern for the long-term health of the ocean and joined the Aquarium's Ocean Legacy Circle.

"My biggest concerns are the increasing threats to marine water quality, and to sustainable fishing," Linda says. "Thankfully, the Aquarium's Seafood Watch program addresses both issues."

Now retired, Linda plays the dulcimer and researches her family history, which to her surprise includes many musicians. In the Sword family, music and ocean conservation are family interests that span generations.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is incredibly grateful to the Sword family for their life-long dedication to protecting the ocean.
Sadly, Sabrina passed away in 2016, but her generous gift through her trust will advance our conservation initiatives and help us inspire new generations of ocean advocates.

To learn how you can secure our programs for the future with a gift in your will or trust, please contact Mary Mullen, vice president of gift planning, at lastinglegacy@mbayaq.org or 831.648.4913. Thank you!
