Ocean Cure for Life Rolls On and while watching their autistic surf camps, I've seen the healing powers of the ocean in full effect. The ocean calms, reenergizes and heals us. Dr. Wallace "J" Nichols is exploring this ocean-mind connection aka BLUEMIND to bring a scientific understanding to what exactly happens to our brains when in the presence of the sea and bring about much needed ocean conservation efforts.

Miami recently banned straws, I feel a renewed sense of hope that this year will be the year that Oceanic finds a way to fix their straw problem.
If you recall, at the end of April, my family and I attended the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) public comment hearing on seismic testing in the Atlantic Ocean. We are adamantly opposed to seismic testing, which will no doubt lead to off-shore drilling for oil and gas. Remember: testing = drilling and drilling = spilling. BOEM is taking public comment on this until May 30. Surfrider Foundation has made it easy for you to make a public comment to the BOEM by creating an Action Alert. Please take 2 seconds and add your voice to let BOEM know that we all don't want seismic testing (or drilling) in the Atlantic Ocean.
