Many of us who support ocean conservation do so by supporting and advising those who are actually getting their hands wet in the work, or those who champion the protection of endangered species at global and national ocean governance gatherings.  It is rare that I get to spend a little time in or even near the ocean.

Greetings from sunny Todos Santos, the second largest town in the municipality of La Paz, which was founded in 1724.  Today it is a small community that plays host to thousands of visitors each year who admire its architecture, enjoy its fine food, and wander the galleries and other shops tucked into its low stucco buildings.  Nearby, the long stretches of sandy beach offer opportunities to surf, sun, and swim.

In advance of my most recent trip to Mexico, I had the good fortune to participate with other ocean-minded colleagues, including TOF Board member Samantha Campbell, in an “Ocean Big Think” solutions brainstorming workshop at the X-Prize Foundation in Los Angeles.  Many good things happened that day but one of them was the encouragement by our facilitators to focus on those solutions that touch the most ocean threats, rather than address a single problem.

We’ve all seen the pictures and videos.  Some of us have even witnessed it firsthand.  A big storm pushes water ahead of it as it churns its way up the coast, the strong winds making the water pile up on itself until it hits the shore and then it rolls inward, depending on how fast the storm has been moving, how long the strong winds have been pushing the water, and the geography (and geometry) of where and how it hits the coast.

Every friend of the ocean is important, of course, and so are the donations they make.  And sometimes, we get a donation that is accompanied by a note that makes it clear that some of the gifts we receive are particularly important to the giver.  This past year was no exception—the mailman delivered dozens of heartfelt messages about the ocean and its future from people who took the time to share the why of their giving.
