I took this on the family vacation last year to Hawaii and my 7 y/o had just come face to face with this turtle. Needless to say, he’s my little ocean hero.

So great to be here on @GoodTalk with everyone. I invited some of my favorite people to be here with us today so let me introduce you to journalist and documentarian Angela Sun, Surf Therapy advocate Kris Primacio and Dan Pingaro, CEO of the Ocean Institute. My name is Vipe and I get to call these folks not only my friends but they inspire me to protect our oceans. They’re all super heroes in my book!

We are introducing a middle school class to their hands on “lab” that includes a couple hours on the Ocean taking water quality samples, benthic samples and whale watching. More like Earth Day meets Ocean Day down here on the waterfront.

That seemingly inconsequential change in Ocean temp houses a huge potential of latent energy that can spawn bigger more destructive storms damaging coastlines, habitats and our economy.
