Like all of us here at Ocean Conservancy, my love for the ocean runs deep.
The ocean has played a major role in my life since I was a kid. I still remember my first beach field trip with Mrs. Terwilliger, our community naturalist. I’ll never forget how she would show up in her pale blue VW bus to teach us about local wildlife, everything from bird calls to identifying snakes.
That first field trip will always stand out in my memory, when she taught us about the impacts of plastic on wildlife, and I felt like even though I was young, I could make a meaningful difference. Her favorite message for children was, “ This is my country. Wherever I go, I will leave it more beautiful than I found it.”
Today, Ocean Conservancy works with millions of volunteers of all ages, from all around the world, on our International Coastal Cleanup—something we’ve been doing for more than 30 years. I participate every year, and now I’m the one teaching my daughter about the impacts of plastic on the ocean and all the amazing animals in it, and how she can make a difference.
