Ginaia Kelly - ocean protection, volunteering, surfing

In Episode 71 we speak with Ginaia Kelly, a woman of the water who spends her days supporting ocean protection, volunteering to help those less fortunate, and pursuing her own passion in the water. Ginaia takes us through her work with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation to raise awareness and support for ocean protection along the California coast. We hear of the dynamics behind supporting a designated marine sanctuary and the coordination role that Ginaia plays. Ginaia shares her stories of surfing in the waters of Santa Cruz, stand up paddleboarding with whales, and volunteering her time with Ride A Wave, getting disabled children into the surf, and volunteering with Operation Surf (getting veterans into the surf). Tons of great perspective on helping the ocean, helping others, and loving life in the water from Ginaia.

Thanks for sharing Ginaia's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of her on Facebook and Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation website. You can also find good stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram and Facebook pages. We are on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.  Photos by Bob Island Kristin Heitzler.
