My Pacific row is a “project” of the Blue Frontier Campaign, a US nonprofit organization that supports grassroots marine conservation efforts, and organizes global conferences that encourage collaboration amongst the multitude of ocean-focused nonprofits.

In early March there will be a major get-together in Washington DC. I am honoured to be one of the members of a panel discussion on the opening day, alongside such marine luminaries as Philippe Cousteau and Dr Sylvia Earle.

The event is open to all who care about the oceans – a perfect opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, and to help support future oceanic endeavours.

By combining efforts we can achieve so much more. If we pull together, we can save the world – including the oceans!

Change is in the air. Can we bring change to the water, too?

Yes we can. Come to Washington D.C. and help Turn the Tide.
