In July 2014, Ben Scheelk of The Ocean Foundation, spent two weeks in Costa Rica volunteering on a trip coordinated by SEE Turtles, a project of The Ocean Foundation, to see firsthand some of the conservation efforts taking place throughout the country. This is the first entry in a four-part series on the experience.

It’s hard to imagine anyone who has not been changed by an experience of the sea. Whether it is to walk by her side, swim in her cooling waters, or float on her surface, the vast expanse of our ocean is transformative. We stand in awe of her majesty.

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.
