Josh Berry, environmental director for Save the Waves Coalition and the man behind All Points South, just released a new video with Captain Paul Watson (Sea Shepherd) and Dave Rastovich (Surfers for Cetaceans) sounding off on the continued need for ocean activism. The video also features surfing from Timmy Turner, Ramón Navarro, Brett Schwartz and Patagonia ambassador Keith Malloy.
After last week's heavy rains here in Ventura it's easy to relate to Rasta's statements about tasting, smelling and feeling the sea on your skin, about being sick when the ocean is sick. For years now, health agencies in Southern California have issued a blanket statement when it rains: stay out of the ocean for 72 hours because of pollution caused by runoff. And pollution is just one of many problems our oceans are facing.
Please consider supporting Save the Waves and their crucial work. We'll be sharing more from them in the not-so-distant future. Captain Watson's Sea Shepherd organization also needs help as they deal with the aftermath of getting rammed by a whaling ship.
