Save the waves Coalition is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the coastal environment, with an emphasis on the surf zone, and educating the public about its value.
Their vision is to create a world where the coastal environment in general and surfing coastline in particular is treated as a precious natural resource, and protected accordingly for the benefit of the greater community.
Save the Waves holds its annual fundraiser “Life is a Wave” on June 6th, 6:30pm to midnight, at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco.
Dean LaTourette is the President of the Save the Waves Coalition Board of Directors. Marine biologist Dr. Wallace J Nichols is a Research Associate for the California Academy of Sciences. Both Dean and J love to surf…and they have a passion for helping to protect and preserve sensitive surf spots around the globe.
J Nichols will be honored with the Save the waves Coalition’s “Wave Saver Award” at the June 6th event for his work to protect our ocean environment and inspiring others to do the same. BTW, J has a PhD in Sea Turtles…how cool is that?
